Sunday Best – November 25, 2018

If you’re in the United States this week, and you’re lucky,amidst the turkey and pie and traffic jams and football games, you’ve had a moment to actually think about the word Thanksgiving.  Thanks. Giving. One reason this holiday is so treasured is that we feel better when we count our blessings.  Research has borne this […]

I have a big birthday coming up, which naturally leads to all kinds of reflection. It’s great to think of the long arc of endeavor in life, of all that’s been tried and some that’s been accomplished. But it’s even more wonderful to consider the long arc of luck. This passage by John O’Donohue steered […]

Friendship is a sheltering tree.                   – Samuel Taylor Coleridge Here’s the wonderful, hopeful, loopy thing about gratitude: once you’ve experienced friendship, you want to be a friend.

Sunday Best – January 21, 2018 (with news!)

This past week marked a joyful beginning, where many years of professional endeavor came to a new and exciting starting point (click here for the news from Putnam).  At other beginnings, whether first days of school, or moving days, or first dates, or new jobs, I’ve felt the familiar flutters of anticipation, happiness, determination, hopefulness, and […]

Sunday Best – December 17, 2017

A dear friend reminded me this week that we are smack-dab in the middle of the season of reflection and gratitude, despite the contrary indicators of jam-packed calendars and distracting sparkly holiday sweaters and occasional bouts of end-of-year whining. Luckily our conversation sent me straight to the wonderful Anne Lamott for refuge, and her book […]

Dear Honeybees, today we are happy to offer a little holiday gift to you from the Honeybee team. We’ve been lucky to welcome two new interns to the Honeybee Capital hive this fall (Hooray for Dominique!

  This Sunday’s meditation comes courtesy of the terrific Anne Lamott, author of the above-noted Help, Thanks, Wow: The Three Essential Prayers , as well as Small Victories, Bird by Bird, and the upcoming and widely anticipated Hallelujah Anyway.

What’s your favorite argument? Odds are that we’ve all had some of our least favorite arguments in recent weeks. These will continue, rightfully so, but as we prepare for Thanksgiving in the US, I’m pausing a moment to consider, what is my favorite argument? In our house, two favorites are the Collins Irish Bread Argument and […]

    Happy Mother’s Day! I am lucky to have the most wonderful mom – strong, kind, loving, and fiercely devoted to her children. When I was eight and said I wanted to be President, she did not laugh; she looked me right in the eye and said, “I will vote for you.” Whoever has […]

Library Stack #3 – Gratitude

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. In short, we’ve established four major quadrants of wisdom (Investing, Nature, Spirit, and Nourishment) and we are arranging thematic pods of content within these big categories. (For a more […]
