Human to Human is Taking a Rest Through December 2018 Though I love noticing, wondering, writing, and posting on this blog, my next few months are for writing in other forms -- and for shaking things up a bit personally.

For the many of us pioneering or re-pioneering the art of meaningful conversation and connnection as… Continue reading
