The Tribe Experiment Day 5

What We Ache For I’ll admit it here: I’m allergic to small talk, and chatting makes me break out into a case of the I-Don’t-Cares. This makes me a terrible party goer, unless I’m the host. I love the depths, sharing one-on-one or with a small group, delving into what we find most compelling about life, art, soul, beauty, pain, hope.

The Tribe Experiment Day 2

  The Questions I had a post all ready that was deep and thoughtful and heart-pulling, and then I thought HOLY COW! Today is Friday! It’s the day of the week people are most harried. They’re tying up their work week, making plans for the weekend, getting home, thinking forward, looking back. It takes a great deal of shifting energy.
