It's been a long absence. I know. I just vanished. Life happens that way sometimes. Last year I wrote through some major upheaval. This year, I finally needed some time to channel my thoughts and focus my efforts.
So hello. I'm back. I'm truly sorry if you missed me. I missed being here.
Last week at this time, I was in Cuba under a bright sky. In a whole week, I used one hour of slow internet connection time. I let the waves and the drinks in the sunshine and the kindness of the staff help me settle into a kind of quiet. And then I let waves of thought move through me. I began to relax into some of the big thoughts I needed to think.
Sometimes you have to slow down to go fast.
What have I been thinking about? Same old, same old. The way human beings discover and experience themselves. How we make change so that the experience is more satisfying - whatever that means to us. What are the steps and elements of learning? How can I get to more people so that more people can experience themselves the way I see them: as powerful, caring, smart and playful?
I am learning.
