I’ve spent the last decade
endlessly engaged with matters of meaning
and intuition and pace —
in business and in life —
wondering why why why am I so obsessed
with saying NO
to 6-step formulas,
and making more (and more and more) digital noise?
Why is my
so offended when “That’s just they way things are” —
What is wrong with me?
And now we see:
The status quo needs us
to swallow all that
To keep on keeping on.
The status quo
leaves us starved
and finding enough —
And now we see:
We are free to harvest our lives for meaning.
To listen deeply to our hearts.
To move at the pace of earth itself,
which is seasonal, which is
s l o w.
It’s time to feed ourselves.
Here, you’ll find eleven years’ worth of books and poems
and breathwork and business advice
to help you go your own way;
hear, develop, and use your own voice;
and tweak your systems of meaning-making
for access to the fuller, richer life
already alive within this one.
You could say I’ve been doing
my very particular work
