Personal State of the Union
Thoughts and feelings about my life in coming year
Hello dear friends and family,
I hope this newsletter finds you well–whether in back to school/office mode, coming off a reflective High Holidays, or amidst the lovely transition from summer to fall.
The main thing I want to share today is my “state of the union.” My intentions for the upcoming year, per the start date in the Jewish calendar, which is all about renewal/transformation. I did this once before, on New Year Day 2020 with Andrew Dunn 2020: Weaving Bridges to Freedom. It was helpful to synthesize thoughts and feelings about life and livelihood into one document to mark the moment entering what I sensed would be a dynamic year.
Please approach me if this tickles or sparks anything in you! I can talk about these topics all day long. And I need lots of help. Teachers, community, reminders.
That’s all I want to share to day. I had drafted a couple of other newsletters this summer that are waiting on the publication of other pieces.
Notable mid to late summer high lights: got breakthrough COVID and quarantined in Oregon, started water coloring, co-created a Jewish Men’s healing retreat, led my first corporate retreat, remembered how beautiful the east coast beaches are, tried to more fully experience the Jewish holidays, designed and distributed an exercise called 36 Questions to Fall in Love [With Your Life], made a new furry friend (see Barkley below!), played more gifting games.
I’ll be around New York for a couple months more and then into the mystery..
