Nurturing the Flourishing World Being Born

2017-08-15T10:42:59+00:00

Wowza, it has been several months since I’ve written a blog and there is a lot happening! I’ve wanted to write to you because it’s part of how I make sense of things with so much afoot. I think out loud and in conversation with friends, coworkers and daily actors; at conferences and gatherings; and [...]

Breathe in Deep Hope

2017-06-29T14:01:24+00:00

Wow, the last few months have felt like such a roller coaster. Ups and downs, fun times followed by some terrifying moments. One day I come home feeling deflated after news of yet more police brutality, war atrocities and terrorism, political plans to line the pockets of the rich, and heart-wrenching disrespect for our mama [...]

Happy May Daily Actors! We are all busy as bees making honey in the hive, implementing projects, getting gardens ready for summer, and attending all of the amazing community events being offered. While our “to-do’s” enrich our lives personally, many of them also benefit the whole community by increasing our collective resilience.  Are any of [...]

Together We are a Force of Nature

2017-04-03T15:02:46+00:00

Happy April Daily Actors! As I walk out the door and bury my face in a fragrant bouquet of jasmine flowers…that has nearly taken over our back steps, I am blown away by the near infinite display of bursting blossoms and shades of spring green. The last two years with the return of regularly quenching [...]

Take Heart, Take Part, Take Action

2016-12-06T17:48:04+00:00

Dear Daily Actor, In this big post-election moment, so full of shock, grief, and fear, it’s important to first take a breath and to take heart. Since the election lots of daily actors have been in our office volunteering, like many of us, needing to connect and do good, craving the sense of sanctuary this [...]

What’s Needed Now to Save the Planet— Individual Actions or a Mass Movement?

2016-12-06T17:48:04+00:00

The recent election will impact many issues, but possibly none greater than the Earth itself and protecting our climate. Two different answers to this question were given last month by 350.org’s founder Bill McKibben at SSU’s 3rd Sustainability Day and, two days later, by Petaluma’s Trathen Heckman at Ripple the World, the annual fundraiser for [...]
