After an unexpectedly chaotic start to 2020, I am now settled and ready to focus a significant amount of time on a few personal projects:

  • Regularly creating blog posts, book reviews, and audio content

My intention with Seeking Tribe is to connect you all to ideas, people, perspectives, and practices that will enable us to solve the looming problems humanity, and our local communities, will face over the coming decades.

If you’re reading this blog, I think the decisions of how you spend your creative energy and time are of great significance and I’d love for you to join me on this journey.

Thriverism by Sonya Mann “The straightforward answer to ‘what does it all matter!’¬†is that empirically, we do matter to each other. If your model indicates that this is insufficient, adjust your model. Because, look, it’s what we’ve got and here we are, mattering as hard as we can. Who you gonna believe, your eyes or your own lying mind?”

The Non-Voter by Chris Arnade Chris reminds us that the largest political affiliation in America is the non-voter. If you talk about politics every day, you need to read this!
