When I call myself a gatherer, I mean that, even without my hands in dirt, I aggregate, together with collaborators, disparate pieces from an ecosystem, and develop the appropriate container for each collection.
We forgot to choose
When abundance showed up, first in manufactured goods, then in information, it all seemed like a simple win. More of what we want, thanks.
But of course, more of too many things is too much.
We are leaving the age of information and entering the age of choice.
Not just choosing what we'll consume, but who we will become. Who will we connect with, lead, trust, honor, dignify, isolate or believe?
And how will we choose to walk through the world and what will we leave behind...
