Putting the pieces together + Indigenous Peoples' Day
 
You may have noticed I've been a bit quiet again the last few weeks.

The reason is that I've started two courses, and they are both taking up a lot of energy (like, a lot). The first is a postgraduate course in community development; the second is a course applying the four skills of person-centred counselling to all relationships.

At the same time, I'm working on an idea for the future, nurturing it, building it. It's about business, and capitalism, and how they're not the same thing, and how we can create the world we want.

So many ideas; so many practices; so many connections: social theory to interpersonal relationship to magic to community to economy to the world. And through all of these connections, this whisper:

We can create the world that we want, the world that we need... 

...but only together.

This whisper: this whisper has always been present; but it is becoming louder, more audible, more present. 

Do you hear it? 

What is it telling you? What does it ask of you? And how can we support one another in following where it leads?
