Ever deeper

Is it possible to change tiny corners of [the world] with simple, thoughtful ideas, by designing a beautiful colouring book that allows people to pause and create?*
(Bernadette Jiwa)

My idea of the modern stoic sage is someone who transforms fesr into prudence, pain into information, and desire into understanding.**
(Nassim Taleb)

Easter 2019

Climate-change protests.

Deep adaptation.

The best job in the world.

Welcome to Thursday morning.

Death and life, a dying planet, life-changes, doing what we love to do.

One of these may sound like the odd one out, yet my hope for the future will be that as we come to grips with the extremely critical nature of the time we’re living in with our planet (and therefore our ourselves together with all fauna and flora) and as we employ deep listening and deep imagination, we will to live more meaningfully than we can imagine right now, we become the transformative people we are capable of becoming: turning fear into prudence, pain into information, desire into understanding, and death into life.

Check out Seth Godin’s blog, Make things better for an interesting read about possibilities.
