LESSONS IN POLLINATION In honor of National Honeybee Day (August 17), here are a few observations I’ve gathered from beekeeping. On Intentionality. Bees don’t need a lot of care – in fact, you can mess things up by bothering them too much, or by rushing around. Each encounter needs to have a simple plan, light enough […]

  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. […]

  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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Unintentionally, our last two posts were “faith” and “hope”.  This seems to leave no choice but for today to be “love”. Yes, I have rolled my eyes at cheesy valentines, cringed at the still-standard question, “and what does your husband do?”, and too often confused warm-heartedness with soft-headedness. But as the world has gotten louder, and […]

  Listening is an act of love.      – Dave Isay Autumn is always a busy season, full of outward-facing activity.  Business conferences, publications, media reports…. just. so. much. talking. My own schedule turns towards talking in the fall too – it’s the time for speaking engagements and research reports and all sorts of […]
