STORIES! Mine, ours, theirs, yours, friends, family, and community; our global future needs eyes that see and ears that hear. Come…read and listen to the river of resilience in which we, like the Chinook Salmon, may flash like silver for the benefit of all!
I am an avid reader. I don’t watch television. My news comes in on NPR and The Week magazine. This leaves me free to pick up a book and read in order to become better informed, inspired and entertained. When a book sets out to encourage some form of change I use a pencil to write my presuppositions on the subject matter on one of the blank pages. I do this so that, if the author succeeds in convincing me to take action, then I know why I changed my mind, or was moved to join a “cause”.
One of the best ways to benefit from a good book is to read it in the company of others, as in Book Clubs. This, then, is the reason why I created the Reflective Readers Club (RRC), so that you, as my reader, might use each Rite of Passage (our word for chapter) to reflect upon your own life at these important and influential periods.
It is my great hope that you would take the time to plunge into this river of resilient discussion. By doing so you will join a movement of thinking people who, by their very words and experience can help to slow the present decline into ruin that is so apparent in the time into which we have been born and for which we have direct responsibility as stewards.
Upstreaming with you,
