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.

I'm salty about saying nonprofits should act more like "real businesses." Nonprofit is just a tax designation. We are all real businesses here. So I'm turning the tables this week and talking about the things that for-profit business could stand to learn from non-profits.

There are a lot of things we do now that we didn't do just a couple of months ago: washing our hands compulsively, wearing gloves and masks to the store, and spraying Lysol on Amazon deliveries just to name a few.

But what about the more enjoyable ways we've found to cope? 

Check out some of the more fun things we're...

Much like in every other area of life during this pandemic, my plans changed for this week's podcast. I had the opportunity to talk with my pal, Kim Farris-Luke. Kim is a funeral director and owner of Farris Funeral Services. She is an expert on the grieving process, and exactly the person we need right now, as we...

In last week's episode, Jen Moff and I talked about the opportunities and lessons available to us now during this time of COVID-19. In an effort to learn something from all this, I took a look at my own situation and asked myself, "What is no longer working for me?"

I also asked this question of my colleagues in the...
