Amanda Gorman

Amanda Gorman took my breath away during today’s inauguration.

I cried my eyes out when Kamala Harris was sworn in. Madame Vice President! What a moment!

Car Choir Concert

I love how resilient hoomans are. For members of Luminous Voices, a professional choir ensemble in Alberta, Canada, rehearsing and performing safely during the pandemic has meant getting into their cars, driving to an empty parking lot and singing with each other’s voices broadcast through their car radios.

Squirrel Ninja Obstacle Course

My son Tilo (10) just shared this delightful Squirrel Ninja video with me. 20 minutes well spent.

Ram Dass – How to Love Yourself

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.)
