A New Adventure Awaits…

Next Saturday, I am due to give birth to my daughter, who is the first child of Daniel and I. While I do not know what is in store for us, but I trust and I can feel this is the greatest adventure we have ever undertaken. This moment, right now, feels like the space in between the in-breath and the out-breath. It is a very special, tangibly sacred space. I know the future—an exciting, challenging, and love-filled one—stretches out before me and that the past is nothing by a feeling ...

A (Creative) Culture in Motion

I received this intriguing question recently from a reader; "Do you know where this (Cultural Creative) concept stands today?" Where do we, the Cultural Creatives, stand today? From what I observe, we, and our ways of being and doing, are growing quietly. More and more of us are learning about "Cultural Creativity” and resonating with it, and feeling inspired to more deeply connect with their values and others who share them. I notice that “Cultural Creativity” seems to have ...
