IdeaFestival 2013

IdeaFestival 13 – Space, Soil and Sherlock

Last week, I had the pleasure of being invited to attend IdeaFestival 2013 in Louisville, Kentucky.

This yearly gathering of the eternally curious is easily one of my favorite conferences. I always leave with tons of brain nibbles that keep me thinking long after I’ve returned home.

Up front, I need to thank the team for flying me down and taking care of me while there. All they ask in return is that I share my thoughts with those who will listen and I’m happy to do so.

Sadly, I had to miss the first day of the festival which focuses on the

My Appearance on And That’s The Truth With Terry Whitaker

Earlier this year I was asked to come in for an interview with Terry Whitaker for her show And That’s the Truth.

We talked about my theater background, career and determination to make the world a better place. Of course we also chatted a bit about Amazing Things Will Happen.

This was kind of trippy to watch since it was filmed so long ago and some things have changed, but overall I’m very happy with how it turned out.

My First Taste of Harness Racing

Before arriving in New Jersey yesterday, I knew almost nothing about the sport and history of harness racing. Until I was invited to cover The Hambletonian I knew very little.

Turns out that it is a pretty big deal in many parts of the globe. Both Sweden and France love it. There are even equestrian tours that go around the globe to visit farms, tracks and races.

The first thing I noticed when I got to The Meadowlands Racetrack is the old school vibe of the place. You know that it has been here for years and has seen tens of thousands

Busy Speaking Schedule

Keynote speaking has been keeping me very busy lately, but I love doing it so there is nothing to complain about.

Wandering and Wondering

Never forget that we don’t need a map to find our way. Yesterday, as I took my camera for a walk along the coast of Victoria, British Columbia I had no purpose beyond enjoying every minute of it.

A Minute of Peace

A Minute of Peace

With all the horrible things that have happened here in Boston and around the world this week, I thought we could all use a minute of peace.

Forest of Focus

Finding Focus in a Forest of Possibilities

Forest of Focus

Spring has begun to arrive in New England and the dark cobwebs of winter will begin to be shook out of the gray matter with each breeze of fresh air I feel on my face.

The woods that hug our property are currently a tangle of brush and trees that soon will be covered in an assortment of leaves. No longer will you see the mess that they are today, but rather they will be transformed into a beautiful wall of all that is good in nature.

As goes the woods, so goes my mind, mood and mental. These days are always dark, confusing and a bit of a mess. The calendar flips and these torment filled hours arrive. It takes a few before I remember that it is commonplace, my normal and that it will pass. Yet, in the midst of this forest of the unknown it always scares me a bit as I try to find my way out.
