IMAGINE1 - 10 yrs vs Tomorrow...Evoking peacemakers in every school

This is a task that is a continual work in progress for me. I have been putting off writing this 'where will I be ten years from now' and then stopped to think: rather than force myself to write this, why not reflect on why this seems difficult? So here goes...



I know the power of imagination. I have been blessed and privileged enough to imagine something and then watch it, near instantaneously, manifest itself into creation, usually before I consider myself 'ready'. As a result I try… Continue

Mother Teresa via Shakwei

"Do we need to be many (how many?) to make an impact? If something does not happen within 12 weeks does it mean it will never happen? This is one truth I have learned from one woman who made a difference - The success of love is in the loving - it is not in the result of loving. Of course it is natural in love to want the best for the other person, but whether it turns out that way or not does not determine the value of what we have done" - Mother Teresa… Continue

IMAGINE2 - socializing and simmering



I'm having a family style late lunch with 12 of my good friends. In order to be invited to the dinner, they each had to bring three items to share, unprepared, and seeds to share. When we all arrived we decided what we would make from the plethora of locally grown ingredients. We spent hours, cooking, connecting, and enjoying the meal together. All the food was rich with flavor and nutrients. It was a feast of the senses, and a feast of friendship. We savored and celebrated every spice,… Continue

My Hero

(I'm bending the rules here slightly and choosing two heroes)



As I write this today, two things come up for me.

1) Heroism is in the eye of the beholder.

2) I feel that we should allow ourselves permission to see ordinary people as heroes more.



Today, I had many heroes, some who intentionally and purposefully take on a leadership role, and some who had no idea how they impacted me today. To illustrate my point I thought I'd list a few:

- My dance instructor who… Continue

My Secret: Periphreal Vision

My Secret: Peripheral vision; keep a look out for other challenges

or new solutions all the time.



When you accept everything around you as a resource, as a learning opportunity, and as reminder of inter-connectivity, then you open yourself up to new ways of seeing, new ways of communicating, new ways of understanding, new ways of empathizing, new ways of creating and new ways of being.



When you see the world around you as an ally and stay open to all the… Continue

public servants

The exchange works directly for state and public workers and servants. It gives them credit in exchange for the amount of public work they contribute to the community. The more constructive they are based off a base rate the more credit they recieve.

Where I will be in ten years.

Ten years from now I will be in a political job assisting with people in the midlands of South Carolina particularly the rural working class and farmers. As the class of people that feed the nation I find that it is imperative that we assist with making sure they produce as much food as possible. I would like to support local scientists as well that are leading in research on how to produce food more efficiently. I will also be participating in missions to foreign countries to help people with…See More
