the strength of gentleness

If you’ve ever tried to pick up a bird egg from the grass in your back yard, hold a newborn baby in your arms, tweeze a splinter from the finger of a child, stack Jenga blocks on an already wobbly tower, you’ve practiced gentleness. It takes a lot of energy and effort, because if we … Read more

your measuring tape

One of my favorite activities to do with a group is to lay a piece of rope on the floor or a stick in front of everyone and ask them how long it is without using any measuring tape. Usually I’ll cut the rope to a length of 11-14 inches, and I know exactly how … Read more

the pre-decision

I’ve made a few (okay, maybe more than a few, thank you very much) stupid and ill advised decisions over the years. No surprise there.
