Making a change feels like it is going to be like chipping away at a wall of concrete.
But the truth is the initial effort is the hardest part. You just need to break through the crust!
PLUS Thoughts on changing my personal Mantra, “Float More. Steer Less.”
I have personal manifesto in the form of a series of “I AM” statements. This is actually the foundation of all my coaching and groups, as well.
For years, the first statement on my list has been, “I am a vessel of love in the world.”

Technology makes life more and more streamlined and efficient…but at what cost!?
Kurt Vonnegut tells his wife he’s going out to buy an envelope:
“Oh, she says, well, you’re not a poor man. You know, why don’t you go online and buy a hundred envelopes and put them in the closet? And so I pretend not to hear her. And go out to get an envelope because I’m going to have a hell of a good time in the process of buying one envelope. I meet a lot of people. And see some great looking babies. And a fire engine goes by. And I give them the thumbs up. And I’ll ask a woman what kind of dog that is. And, and I don’t know. The moral of the story is – we’re here on Earth to fart around. And, of course, the computers will do us out of that. And what the computer people don’t realize, or they don’t care, is we’re dancing animals. You know, we love to move around. And it’s like we’re not supposed to dance at all anymore.”
So many things are happening in magical ways.

It *is* possible.

Some thoughts on interacting with people who have no homes. Plus a Thanksgiving blessing that got a little potty-mouthed.
I wanted to share the opening of Rob Breszny’s “Pronoia” as a beautiful reflection of gratitude and optimism.
This is the time of year when we get sucked into transactional obligations disguised as holiday spirit. Stay strong and hold on to your gifting nature!
People sometimes assume that “Burning Man” is *just* what is going on in Black Rock City, Nevada. But “Burning Man'” is a movement that includes Regional events all over the world.
This weekend I went to “YOUtopia” in Southern California and experienced many of the things people complain are now missing in Black Rock City.
