My memory is dismal so it’s always important for me to reflect and write.
Life is short, but it can be incredibly broad. Some snippets of 2011:
Family rocked. We celebrated our eighth astonishing year of marriage and are raising two wonder-filled daughters.
My wife kicked it into high gear doing double duty as a teacher and photographer
Took over the house I was raised in, and all the work that comes along with it.
Worked at leading our faith community through transitions – new location, sudden death of a friend and leader, conflicts and daring new directions
Incorporated a company Humanity3 Inc.
Spoke in a range of spaces from high schools to church innovation collectives to social finance forums.
Dove into the (new-to-me) world of business and startups – went from basics, to bootcamps, to pitching to investors
Connected with an incredible amount of entrepeneurs who are also do amazing things in the city
Failed – everything from personal writing disciplines to a social media grant competition, to launching a product on schedule.
Began becoming more vegetarian, more fully present, and more fascinated by life than ever before
Can’t wait to tackle everything that 2012 holds.
