  • Going Fallow

    September 21, 2023. I’ve never really been a fan of the tech bro motto, “move fast and break things.” Sure, there are situations where the next step needs to be determined by decisive impulse, or where we are compelled by the speed of change to adapt quickly to a whole new normal. Sometimes innovation can […]


    June 4, 2023. I have been deep in the challenge of figuring out how to make my work in the world a force for good, something that nourishes our inner nature and purpose for being here, now, in this age of mass disruption. I’ll confess I’ve felt a lot of despair recently around the state […]

  • Make it when the sun shines

    Make it when the sun shines

    May 12, 2023 I played hooky this week. A decade ago, even a few years ago, I might have felt guilty about it. I would not have even considered saying “yes” to skipping out on the daily grind—to stop staring anxiously at the never-ending To Do List with a kind of magical thinking that being […]

  • Blue? Green?

    Blue? Green?

    April 14, 2023 when you don’t see the world in the same way The only argument of consequence my partner and I have regularly is whether it’s green or whether it’s blue. A t-shirt, a blossom in shade, the colour of the sky, the new duvet cover we can’t decide on… We see the opposite […]

  • Spring Cleaning

    Spring Cleaning

    March 31, 2023 Turning the Saboteurs Inside-Out i’ve been stuck in the muck. Despite two decades living in the Pacific Northwest where spring comes early in vibrant yellows and purples and almost vulgar pinks, i still remember how the advent of the new season Out East felt like a rut you just couldn’t get out […]

    Happy Burnout Anniversary

    February 13, 2023 A short story of my un-doing Have you ever woken up suddenly one day wondering, what on earth am i doing here? That was me about this time last year. i don’t think i’d ever been so sick. Most mornings i would wake up in a flurried panic, on very little sleep, […]

  • Nature’s holiday bells

    Nature’s holiday bells

    December 28, 2022 ‘Tis the time of year where, in many cultures, we gather with friends and family, joining in community to celebrate that transition from darkness to light. It is also the season of deep quiet transformation and the perfect time to lay in intention for we want to nurture in the new year. […]

  • Mushrooms for later

    Mushrooms for later

    November 14, 2022 Tending to the fruits of your labour. I spent the weekend inoculating logs with Shiitake mushroom mycelium. Drill, plug, wax, roll, repeat… 200x. Then wait. Small tedium today for what could be a sumptuous feast in the future. Sometimes running your own small coaching business feels like this too: a lot of […]

  • Friendly giants

    Friendly giants

    October 14, 2022 Big things are a-coming! Are you up for the task? i’ve been having that feeling ‘midterm overwhelm’ creeping in. It’s a pattern my fellow (recovering) academics will recognize, and one so ingrained in someone who spent half their adult life in educational institutions that it is almost unconscious. At university both as […]
