now what?


“I have no idea where I am going.  I do not see the road ahead of me.”*

You are journeying into the unknown.  Following your learnings and your hunches.  The mix of the two feels odd.  Learnings are tangible, verified by others: hunches are the unknown and very personal.

But what can you do?  This is where you are.  You have a desire to make something invisible become visible:

“You see, there are invisible problems all around us, ones we can solve. But first we need to see them. to feel them.”**

It began with a thought, but the thought became charged with an energy only you can feel, and now what?

It doesn’t feel right.  All of your life you’ve been about settling more and more into knowing exactly what a day should contain and what you have to do within it – from morning to night.  Now there’s some kind of unknown, a mystery, a randomness about which you have no idea of the destination.

‘When we repeat the same activities, day in and day out, we limit our ability to have new experiences.’^

If you dare, take a moment and write down what you must do.  Leave it somewhere for someone to find.


Now what?
