We all reach a place where holding on by our fingernails is no longer possible. We have to let go. We have to let the effort of holding on dissolve. We must be willing to fall back into the nothingness. Not knowing if there will be anything there to support our fall. No longer even trusting, because we have let … Read More

It starts as a small whisper. Something needs to change. It tugs at the corners of our busy lives. It will not be silenced. We try to ignore it. Then we find ourselves awake at 2:23AM. The whisper has become a roar. Change to what, how? The answers do not come easily. Just the certainty that change needs to happen. … Read More

Days like this. Fresh air, forever blue sky. Such beauty. How easy is it to step over, when this is normal. An everyday day. I think how easy it is to move towards privilege. What wasn’t there, is there.. which becomes normal. And then we insist on nothing less. And in our insistence become entitled. To live in gratitude is … Read More

Amplify. Some time ago I was accused of being a hard to work with. In the context it was entirely a gender based comment. Given the larger context of the project it floored me literally.

A seagull is so completely a seagull. Some are bossy. Some are passive. Character can be developed. But the Pattern Integrity of the seagull is as … Read More

We can create a more beautiful world that our heart knows is possible. Or we can spend our days preaching about the terrors of the future. AI. Robotics. Designer babies. That power is held in the hands of a few. Good to know. But preaching without action is just speaking the future into existence. Or we can take the easy … Read More

To put ourselves into situations that ask us to step up and through, to set goals that inspire and are unlikely to be achieved in our lifetime. To be uncomfortable often, uncertain as a norm. This is how we rise from mediocrity. Not fame, not glory, but the truth of rising to our best.   Photo Taken July 24th 2016 … Read More

To be free. What does it mean to be free? To be free from that which owns us. Our addictions, our hate, our sense of powerlessness. Our self loathing. Our experience of being a victim. Our righteousness. The world might tie us in chains. We might have limited choices of opportunity, education, networks, access. Our soul, our identity, our dignity, … Read More

How to be a great partner. To be able to lead when needed. To follow when others are more capable of leading. To hold all other partners as complimentary and synergistic. Therefore different, and necessary. They are not you, do not have your skills or worldview. Which is a blessing. Because you multiplied only gets more amplification of singular skills … Read More
