I am for you

The Speaking Up Process in Action! Featuring Ellie (my mom)

Loves, losses, dreams, and needs.

The Speaking Up process is a simple way to refine our dialogue so that we can explore, clarify, and share our most meaningful stories of who we are and what we want in life.

In this beautiful video that I’m so very happy has come into being, I guide my mother through my four questions, so that not only can she share her stories with us, but also so that you can learn a bit more about how this process can work, and be adapted to diverse situations and individuals.

I very much hope you enjoy it!

The Big Picture:

We have land now! Whoohoooo!

My big goal is literally close enough to walk on and touch with your toes! Thanks to generous donations I’m finally in the physical stages of starting CREATE Space, a non-profit community resource hub with resident artists, techies, and educators all working with the community to find creative solutions using available resources to serve the needs of the community members freely and unconditionally so that everyone can be their best possible selves. I’ve finally purchased (very cheap) property, that can use a whole lot of love, in a small town in mid-coast Maine. So now I’m actively seeking folks who can help figure out how to make some (free) housing for volunteers, and some public workshop spaces for doing our creative work, as well as folks to help sort out the legal stuff of starting a non-profit or whatever. Please connect with me using one of the links here if you have any suggestions or want to join us!

I’ve also created a Patreon creator account for those who believe that my work is valuable and who have an excess number of banking points (aka $’s, £’s, ¥, or whatever).
