New wine …new wine skins!

“Though no one can go back and make a brand new start,

 anyone can start from now and make a brand new ending.”



It is a familiar statement. Put differently, once every little while. We have all intentionally or been forced by circumstances to… Start a new chapter, open a new page, go back to the drawing board, start a fresh and all those synonyms that you may have used when it was time to concede some reality and take on a new path…

Stepping up community self-sustainability, one [Ethiopian] step at a time

Having just come back from evaluation and design fieldwork for an Ethiopian Red Cross (ERCS)/ Swedish Red Cross/ Federation of the Red Cross and Red Crescent project, the power of communities is still palpable in my mind. They know what great impact looks like. They know what activities they can best sustain themselves. It's up to us to ask, listen and…

After three days of working together, we had reached a place of being willing to share quite openly of struggles in our lives.



I found myself drawing strength and hope from MariJo Vasquez in particular, a native of Barcelonia. MariJo has faced struggles yet has clearly come…

Share team (e)motion weekend in Barcelona!

Many of you were also present in thought, some through Skype, and a good many through the wonderful individual dreams for share that you sent in. Thank you everyone for contributing to making this get-together…

From a PASSIVE DREAMER to a PASSIONATE VISIONARY ...DUST Your DREAMS

When the passive dreamer sleeps and snores, …the passionate visionary rises and soars.



The names in the hall of fame are not of those who hang their dreams on a wall frame and did nothing: it is those who realized that dreams need daily dusting and that one cannot do so without soiling their hands. Dreamers are darers who are not afraid to try, and don’t mind cutting a sweat. With time, like my guitar, some dreams might have gone out of tune, and others rusted, there is need to WORK… Continue
