Join us in just a bit on 'Creativity in Play'. Steve & I will be exploring all things Elephant with writer Cheryl Merrill.
We'll talk with writer Cheryl Merrill about her applied creativity work documenting elephants in Africa, as well as her forthcoming book, Larger than Life, Living in the Shadows of Elephants. Find out what elephants have to teach us about creativity, learning, writing ... and being human. Cheryl writes about her experience with elephants: "Together. Inhabiting the earth. Lives enlarged."

Join Steve & I on 'Creativity in Play' as we chat with Mara Kaplan. Her journey as mom and founder of 'Lets Kids Play' is a remarkable testament to the power of our imagination, play, and creativity. #playmatters #inclusivity #community
We'll explore what it means to plan, design and implement accessible and inclusive playspaces for children with and without disabilities, as well as how different types of organizations -- from manufacturers and retail stores to parks districts and community groups -- can ensure that all children have the best play opportunities possible. Our guest is nationally recognized play and playspaces expert Mara Kaplan, founder of Let Kids Play!

Mary Oliver is one of my favorite #nature  poets. #poetry 

Can't wait to listen. Grateful to Steve Dahlberg for sharing. #gratitude  
Often quoted, but rarely interviewed, Mary Oliver is one of our greatest and most beloved poets. At 79, she honors us with an intimate conversation on the wisdom of the world, the salvation of poetry, and the life behind her writing.

My friend & colleague, Betsy Wetzig, shared her response to my 'Archival Memoir Project' videos this morning. Thought I'd share a portion of her response and invite you to share in the co-creation of the ongoing story at http://playequalspeace.com/ 

"So real, embodied, playful story telling. Archetypal made tangible. You make it clear that getting in touch with, and living from the heart is natural and simple.... though quite hidden, and perhaps scary for most modern people..... And a sometimes struggle, ....but something which can be taught/discovered and shared together, playfully and creatively.

Here is my bravo.... but the story is ongoing.....I now have a deeper understanding of how playfulness can be a medium of understanding.... for one thing it can help us deal with the "scaries" as it lets us interact with ourselves.... and there are many more."

I'll be delivering a new 'Play Notes' about 'Openness, Generosity, Bravery, Action Steps = Letting YOU in on the Playful Process' soon!
