Sunday Best – April 7, 2024

  Nothing in life is as important as you think it is when you are thinking about it.      – Daniel Kahneman, Thinking Fast and Slow   You have to love a researcher on thinking who makes a big point of noting that the answer to every question is not just, “think harder.” Sometimes, […]

  Dear ones, in this season of rebirth and renewal and regenerative miracles, I share the wisest counsel I’ve recently received. May we remember our dreams, and not discount them.   What might be possible? What might we re-member? What has always been true?     A joyful Easter to all who celebrate!

Leave the raft upon the riverbank.   That’s the summation of an oft-cited Buddhist parable, where the story gently reminds us that just because something is useful in one setting, we need not carry it with us forevermore. Steeped as I am in traditions of honor and loyalty and yes, a little bit of stubbornness, […]

  A few weeks ago, I attended an amazing concert. It was thought-provoking, beautiful, and thoroughly enjoyable, and stuck in my mind for days afterward. Walking home that night, I felt dazzled. Challenged. This weekend, I saw a different show, also amazing. It was joyful, tender, and surprisingly participatory. People who never sing were singing. […]

Make new friends, but keep the old. One is silver and the other gold.      – Girl Scout song (and also a poem from Joseph Parry)   Sometimes whole weeks zip by fully in the present, a blur of our current places and people. Then once in a while there is a blissful time […]

  This weekend I happened upon a beach full of seashells, heaped in great piles like some sort of salty sunny Aladdin’s cave. The abundance was astonishing, and unsettling. At first I stood dazed and dazzled. Then I started darting from pile to pile, sure that the next one was somehow better than the one […]

  Friends, it is a loud loud world. In an effort to set aside the daily news one night this past week, I watched a shocking number of Taylor Swift reels and learned that butterflies sometimes drink turtle tears. While these were worthwhile distractions, they were just that – distractions. Thankfully there was also a […]

  Friends, I am happily unplugged today, and wishing you a pocket of quiet reflection as well. Here with a similar and more completely formed wish is Invitation from Mary Oliver’s Red Bird :   Oh do you have time to linger for just a little while out of your busy     and very important day […]

Not all those who wander are lost.    I heard a terrific academic presentation this week which made the point that conversation is a highly advanced technology, full of signals like facial expressions, pauses and responses, and pacing and tone of language. This is one reason I still listen to corporate executives on earnings calls […]

Sunday Best – February 4, 2024

  When I visited Japan last fall, I kept having flashbacks to my 20-year old self, the person I’d been when I first traveled there. Every Proustian taste and every recollected phrase pulled me into a strange parallel universe, where I was simultaneously then and now. Then I happened upon this passage from Zora Neale […]
