“It was the first practical trial of our theories of equal brotherhood and sisterhood; and we people of superior cultivation and refinement (for as such, I presume, we unhesitatingly reckoned ourselves) felt as if something were already accomplished towards the millennium of love . . . . Though we saw fit to drink our tea out of earthen cups to-night, and in earthen company, it was at our own option to use pictured porcelain and handle silver forks again, tomorrow.”

From The Blithedale Romance, by Nathaniel Hawthorne

I am a coach and facilitator, writer, and commentator on life. I consider myself a citizen of the world, interested in the human condition and how the stories we tell about ourselves actually influence how we experience life. I tend to be passionate, moody, and hungry, and finds the quote from Hawthorne particularly fitting to how we, as humans, tend to move about in the world at large. We like to think we are extending ourselves in an effort to be “good” people trying new things, while at once wishing the moment of extension to be over so we can return to our comforts and usual ways. So, how do we sustain our desired changes?

So why this blog? For observations on life, politics, relationships, and anything else that sparks my interest. This blog is where I explore and express ideas and share experiences. It’s a place for me to reflect and  imagine. If all goes well, what is considered and presented here will interest and engage you.
