Listening - watching
taking a moment
drawing the world
finding the way to connection
again and again.

Garden Networks

Back from the Authentic Leadership in Action (ALIA)
conference in Victoria, B.C.
Spent time there with Tom Hurley and Keith Webb
thinking about patterns - in organizations - and nature. 

Now getting grounded back home, 
I wander into the garden, 
looking for patterns . . .

Disappearing Words

I recently heard that the Oxford Junior Dictionary 
has removed a number of words from its new edition, 
replacing them with words they feel our technology-driven children

Here is a sampling of what has been left behind. 
I write them out to hold them near, alive and singing, 
resonant names of our natural world . . .
