Sunday Best – April 21, 2019

  What’s your -er?   I was lucky to attend the TED conference this past week, where there are always some unexpected sources of wisdom and insight. If you had asked me to name the most likely source of connection and de-partisanship to be encountered during the gathering, I would not have guessed Frank Luntz, […]

Island or Archipelago? I was lucky to attend the terrific On Cue gathering in Boston this week, where poet Regie Gibson put forth the image of an archipelago — islands that appear to be separate, but that are really all connected, just below the surface. It’s not a brand-new notion, but it is a powerful […]

Sunday Best – February 12, 2017

If you’re asking a question with an answer, chances are you’re asking the wrong question. This plus many other insights were part of the exchange between Wes Jackson, Wendell Berry, and Mary Berry at this year’s Schumacher Lecture, part of the terrific Schumacher Center for a New Economics. If you are interested in how to […]

  Dear Honeybees, I have been starting this year unplugged, a Very Uncomfortable Thing indeed — but I’ve done so with the idea that reconnecting in the most powerful sense sometimes involves disconnecting in the most mundane sense. Surely good things will come of this time, and I as I plug back in this week […]

Library Stack #6 – Honeybees, Pollinators, and Superorganisms

Hello Honeybees, and welcome to our library! We’ve recently reorganized our online library in a way that allows for both more logical navigation and more serendipity.

(Re)Connection in Leadership: How ‘Bout This Pope?!?

Investing is power.  Where we choose to focus our resources – it matters. That’s why I’m always interested in where our leaders are investing their own resources – their time, attention, energy, finances, and material resources.  Last week Pope Francis released his first long publication, the apostolic exhortation Evangelii Gaudium (The Joy of the Gospel), […]

Moderates Of The World, Unite! – dispatch from The Nantucket Project

This weekend I was delighted to attend The Nantucket Project, built around the theme “Seek the Truth – Endure the Consequences”. When we think of Truth, it’s often with a capital T, as something that is indisputable – and so it was pleasantly surprising to find much of the conversation focused on nuance and subtlety. […]

Getting Started, Keeping Going – Tribute to Seamus Heaney

This week I have read several thoughtful articles with advice for bloggers, all urging focus and thematic clarity (rightly so).  But today I am writing not about investing, but about poetry, experts and editors be darned.  Because Seamus Heaney’s work has helped me more than all of those blogger-advisers put together. Because poetry is one […]

Prosperity, and Sisterhood, and Honeybees

This is a story of prosperity, and sisterhood, and honeybees. Two years ago, I connected with Prosperity Catalyst and visionary leader Siiri Morley (member of the Fast Company League of Extraordinary Women) through the Pipeline Fellowship, a group that trains women angel investors.
