Commonplace Capers, No. 07

I know some of you noticed I took a brief pause from my regular routine here this week. A sudden change in circumstances has me scrambling to kick-start my consulting activity. I’ve been doing freelance consulting work for over 20 years, and the focus of the work comes and goes depending on other financial factors. This week, I have turned back to it.

I support nonprofits, small businesses, and creativepreneurs with a menu of services: from strategic planning, to communications support, to fundraising campaigns. I just wanted to take a moment to share this with all of you. Heck, you never know who might be on a non-profit board seeking this type of support!

If you’d take a moment, I’d appreciate you having a look. I’m sharing my page for creativepreneurs, as each of you are certainly that!

Brave Women

The creativity I discover each day in the stream of posts from those I follow truly amazes me. What a cry to the cosmos, much better than the message slapped to the side of those early spaceships sent to nowhere.

I can not give kudos to everyone at once, but today I want to highlight three brave women.




I encourage you to engage with them and learn of their journeys. My life has been so enriched by the authenticity they each express and share in this agora. I believe yours will be too.

Of course, it would be a bit silly not to introduce all of you to my partner and best friend, Judith. Whenever cowardice creeps up and grabs me by the back of the neck, she calmly guides me to the true north star.
