Busy Season

By Work WildNo Comments

Busy Season Fall Equinox is upon us.  When day and night are equal in length.  When long summer days give way to earlier sunsets and cooler temperatures.  School is back in session.  Holidays aren’t here yet (despite store displays to the contrary).  It’s that window of time, post-summer, to dig…

By Wild ThoughtsNo Comments

When the fog lifts Socked in. As clouds touch down. As the sun rises filtered by fog to a gentle glow. The world softens in this light. It’s the perfect temperature the perfect humidity to breathe gently. Deeply. On mornings such as this we humans have to slow our relentless…

By Work Wild

In Defense of Keyboard Inactivity I remember working for a shipping company as an ‘unloader’ when I was in my mid-twenties.  It was a late afternoon shift. There wasn’t much to it, the conveyer belt was positioned into the truck and we, the unloaders, lifted the packages onto the belt with…

Seeds

By Wild Thoughts

Seeds It doesn’t matter how many decades I’ve been doing it. Every single year, when I plant vegetable seeds the size of a pin head into soil I am mesmerized and astonished when they sprout. Some are tenderly nursed along indoors establishing some roots before they are set in the…

Now is that moment for more Wilding

By Work Wild

Now is that moment for more Wilding Hopefully I’ve nudged you toward the notion that bringing your whole Wild self to work and encouraging that in others is a good idea. I know it’s catching on because in conversation or when I ask groups at speaking engagements for the words they…

An orchard full of questions

By Wild Thoughts

An orchard full of questions In grasping for answers –when we hold too tight– we squeeze the juice right out of the question. In search of definitive, black and white certainty we unwittingly plot a rigid path that narrows with each step. It’s hard not to dig in, once we’ve…
