"Opening the eggs was a little tough, like any good journey, and the reward was profound, like any good journey."

Dr Adam Gill & Friends

Adam’s Message Eggs were created by a group of colleagues and collaborators who were all part of a transformative enterprise programme.

It was interesting to see how Message Eggs could work in this context, and the impact it had.

Adam wrote to us after opening them: “I am writing this email from Popty Penant in Llangollen and the weather is fine… today, I wanted to open the Message Eggs that you all wrote such amazing things in.

“I gotta say, I was choked up and it was incredibly moving to read your kind, and loving messages.

“My reaction to Message Eggs were that they were organic, delicate somehow and positioned thoughtfully inside an ornate box. I knew it was something special, and I have somehow been nervous about opening them, which was probably why it took me so long to do so.

“Opening the eggs was a little tough, like any good journey, and the reward was profound, like any good journey.

“It wasn’t so much the completion of opening and reading, rather being present to the experience and noticing the messages throughout this.

“Reading these messages reminded me about how special this journey has been. I am reminded of a mission I once set myself – to create connected loving communities.

“A thanks to all for reminding me with your messages, and a heartfelt thanks to Libby who designed and makes…

…such an amazing, deep, deeply profound way to communicate.

“I felt it at my core, I allowed my vulnerability to be present, I noticed my reflections, and I felt completely connected with you.”
