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.

His poems were used by participants to host some of our process together.… Continue reading

Contribute, Learn, Gain

Last week, through The Circle Way Practicum Australia, this intention statement (in orange) came to me through an exercise for all participants. The exercise involves reflection. And presence. And dialogue. And circle. And then writing, one statement.

I love the way that a deeper and nuanced awareness shows up as we humans turn to one another.

This year: “I intend… Continue reading
