What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
After tinkering with a blog for a few years, I'm relaunching with a new design (attached) have written a story that will be under the 'Inspiration' tab of this new site. This illustration will be the design that will accompany this inspiration story and will be regularly viewed since it's part of the main navigation. It will help tell the story of the blog. Along with this story, the inspiration gives a nod to the Greek god Hermes - a god of transitions and boundaries - appropriate for these rapidly changing times. This is the story I want illustrated: Awakening Purpose in the Whitewater of this 140 character world - the thinking bench story This blog begins with a story I told at TEDActive a few years ago, though I feel it continues to resonate even more with each passing day. It's one of solace and endless imagination in the always now, instant feedback, data streaming, 140 character, interconnected world we all live in. It's a world I thrive in and one I love. And it's one that is changing us at the deepest level of our biology and humanity. It's a world where our most valuable and defining resource, our attention, is stressed by the very tools that are enabling our progress. It's a fascinating juxtaposition of our morality against our Darwinian drive to evolve. Though the thinking bench story begins with much more humility and with my grandfather, a World War II vet who returned from Germany and trained as a bricklayer. Using that newfound skill, his GI $$ with his beautiful new bride, family and a few acres purchased on the rural hills North of Pittsburgh, my grandfather built their homestead, brick by brick. He then joined the U.S. Postal Service devoting his next 23 years before retiring and meeting me -- he a retired Veteran (of life), and me, an attention hungry, curious boy. I remember looking forward to our constitutionals -- a more eloquent term for daily, mindful walks, spoken during a time when responsibility coated our country's shoulders. Past the thorny, delicious blackberry patches and over the hillside, poking near the edge of the woods, we explored and discovered the changing world around us, his land. No matter the path of the journey, we always ended up at the same place, at a bench made from the trees on the property and cut for firewood to heat the home during winter. We sat atop a long, wide piece of weathered wood spread over two logs too big to easily be split into the cords of firewood. We sat there quietly… thinking. We sat in silence of our voice for what felt like forever. I knew we were supposed to be thinking, but as an eight year old, I remember being quiet and looking up at his far away face and just wondering; "What the heck are we supposed to be thinking about anyway!?" It's only now, in the whitewater of this data streaming, 140 character, interconnected world and after well over a decade bootstrapping and building an organization, that I've begun to understand his wisdom of the beauty being present in the moment those constitutionals illuminated, and the time for reflection, dreaming and communing with a system larger than us the thinking bench allowed. It's the double-consciousness of that wisdom and the often contradictory relationship of our exponentially increasing evolution with technology I hope to explore, discover and share with this blog, my part in the conspiracy of awareness. Are you a co-conspirator?
