Revolutionary Love

This speech by Valarie Kaur made me weep a few months ago while walking through a Brooklyn park. Listen to the very end. It’s powerful. So very powerful.

I am beyond thrilled and honored that Valarie is our guest at CreativeMornings/NYC this Thursday, November 19th.

I wish everyone on this planet would read her book See No Stranger – A memoir and manifesto of revolutionary love.

I am humbled I’ll get to be in conversation with Valarie this Thursday at 4:30pm ET. Join us. (It’s free.)

How to Live Adventurously Every Day

I was lucky enough to experience this DO Lectures talk by Alastair Humphreys live in 2018. I keep coming back to it, when I need a little kick in the butt and a reminder to just push myself out of my daily routines and comfort zones. I keep wondering, especially now, in times of Covid, how can I live more adventurously? What micro adventures can I add to my day?
