you belong here

8 the future will

One of the favourite sayings of my friend Alex McManus.  He’s provided me and others a place to connect with deep creativity.

More than eleven years ago, Alex told me the future will come through those who must, setting me on a path that has led me to today.  Literally today, as I met some great people wanting to explore their deep creativity for the sake of others.

Must is who we are, what we believe, and what we do when we are alone with our truest, most authentic self.  It’s our instincts, our cravings and longings, the things and places and ideas we burn for, the intuition that swells up from somewhere deep inside of us.’*

You belong here is about being both centred and adventurous, shaping the kind of spaces in which others can explore, individually and collectively.

“When I walk into my library it feels like optimism and hope.  It simultaneously offers a sense of adventure and comfort.”**

(*From Elle Luna’s The Crossroads of Should and Must.)
(**Poet Joseph Mills, quoted in Laura Damon-Moore and Erinn Batykefer’s The Artist’s Library.)
