Relentlessly Human Tour: Info Sheet

When everything is awful, the best we can do is love each other. 

When it’s happening: Nov. 17, 2021-Nov. 17, 2022

What it is: Podcast, YouTube Series, Blog, possibly a book with photos, and eventually a movement

History & Inspiration: This began in conversation with Matt Crouch on the Big Island of Hawaii, and out of a desire to reconnect in person with the people we’ve missed because of the pandemic and the way Life has scattered us. 

We’ve been locked down, separated, disconnected, and often scared and lonely. We lost deep important connections with friends and family--the connections at the root of our humanity. 

As I made a list of who I wanted to see and hug, I realized most of my friends are artists. It struck me that this tour and its public-facing components could be a fitting way to honor the art, artists, and creativity that helped us all through the pandemic. (And will probably continue to help us through the next however many years we will be dealing with this disease.)

This tour’s public-facing components are a podcast, video series (YouTube and IGTV), and written blog, with the ultimate goal of creating a movement of radical acceptance, love, and kindness towards our fellow humans.


How you can support: When possible, I am traveling in my 2008 Toyota RAV4 that has almost 200,000 miles on it already and sleeping on friends’ couches. I travel with my dog, Oakley.

Did you set goals for yourself at the beginning of 2019? This is a great time to look back over your list and see how you did. I was inspired by "Happier with Gretchen Rubin" to make a 19 for 2019 list of 19 things I wanted to accomplish in my career this year. (I love a goal-setting strategy!) This week on the podcast,...

Thanksgiving and the accompanying public displays of gratitude has come and gone, but I think this week and next are really the thanking season.
Now is the time that we receive year-end donations, and hopefully get to sign and send out a small mountain of thank you notes to donors.
There are 5 elements to a really...

In episode 114 I talked about how to survive a bad board. Well that opened the floodgates and I've been hearing about aaaaaaaall sorts of bad board member behavior. Rather than sit and be mad about it, I wanted to give you some things to consider and maybe even a couple of action items you can use to help you get back...
