  YOU ARE THE PLACE WHERE I STAND ON THE DAY WHEN MY FEET ARE SORE. This is the literal translation of “mo sheasamh ort lá no choise tinne,” the Irish phrase for trust, as noted by Pádraig Ó Tuama. As the summer has advanced, I’ve started to see my situation as a kind of […]

  On earnestness. I recently vowed to be even more earnest, as a sort of counterweight to the meanness and cynicism that can seem like our collective default mode. In doing so, I was aware that the cost would be that I’d sometimes feel foolish, trusting others who are not similarly earnest, and once in […]

Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they shall fail; where there be tongues, they shall cease; where there is knowledge, it shall fall away…. And now abide faith, hope, and love, these three; but the greatest of these is love.          – 1 Corinthians 13   I recently experienced the […]

engagement is prayer. boom.    – Terry Tempest Williams, at Bioneers 2019   As a mother, you might sit and let things get noisy in the other room. But when you hear something break, you get up and go in.  It’s time to get in the room. – Heather McTeer Toney, at Bioneers 2019   […]

LESSONS IN POLLINATION In honor of National Honeybee Day (August 17), here are a few observations I’ve gathered from beekeeping.

  On Honor and Love. Thanks to the wonderful, people-centric team of Cue Ball Capital, this week I heard Khalida Brohi speak about her new memoir, I Should Have Honor. Khalida’s story is terrific, with important links to gender equity, cultural identity, and personal development. But, like all good stories, at the heart of it is love. […]

This past week I had the honor of visiting with the amazing team of Last Mile Health in Liberia, whose mission is to save lives in the world’s most remote communities. LMH’s vision is a health worker for everyone, everywhere, every day. In Liberia this work supports the government’s national health plan, which includes building […]

  WHERE IS THE love? It’s the season of resolutions, when the supermarket is sold out of cauliflower and the treadmill section of the gym is overcrowded. The challenge is, most of us don’t really love cauliflower all that much, and even with the greatest podcasts in the world it’s hard for treadmill time to […]

When we disagree with something, we tend to think Against. We don’t like this policy, or don’t respect this manager, don’t want to buy this product, don’t want to see this person. Against is a cloudy feeling, a storm in an endless night. But when true tragedy strikes, a hard-won silver lining is that sometimes […]

What is your superpower? One of my favorite little books is All My Friends are Superheroes, a quirky story where, indeed, everyone has a curious ability. Invisibility, hypnotism, bat-like hearing… all are not only possible, but present. There’s so much to be done in our world, from folding laundry to analyzing data to fighting for […]
