Asking for help doesn’t make us weak. We are born helpless, 100% reliant on the good care of others. Our cultural mythology bent us to consider that the solo heroic journey is the mark of strength.

To step bravely into the new world forged by human ingenuity and emergence, to be present to the pop culture of our youth. Curiosity and adventure are … Read More

Disappointment follows the longing for what was not to be. It is natural for us to carry hopes and dreams. Our hopes and dreams have us strive to express the full extent of our capability.

There is a quiet place inside us that knows when we have done our best. Invested the time in training, preparation, managing all the details. Overcome hurdles, endured mishaps. Stayed the course. Then shown up on the day and given it our all. No more to give. Our best. Comparisons matter not when we choose this path. Satisfaction and contentment … Read More

Literacy enables us to engage with the world differently. To speak a language, be that the language of your home and place, of maths, coding or oil painting, shapes our experience of the world. Simultaneously, literacy of a particular language identifies our tribe. If we want to change our world view, learn a new language. Rap, music, coding, street, dance, … Read More

In our world of automation and always on, always connected, the deliberate act of seeking respite and rest is essential to our wellbeing. To walk barefoot, be that on sand or grass. To hear the bird call. Watch an ant be busy doing ant things. To allow the salt water to hold us up, as it does when we stop … Read More
