Sustainable Me III
My birthday catches me off guard. I always feel that I should have been anticipating it more, making plans. Instead, I usually end up working, deferring the observation for a later date that sometimes doesn’t come. I’ve been flummoxed about what to do this year. Navigating Foresight’s projects, currently focused on food, agriculture, water, and community development, while simultaneously growing the enterprise, is the primary focus of my life. I feel fortunate. I’ve learned to mine fulfillment from the process, rather than trying to reap it from achieving goals. Birthdays come and go, it’s what happens in between that matters. Fifty years old and I’m still learning, striving, practicing. “Practice makes perfect,” I admonished Foresight’s interns recently while they were making phone calls and trying hard not to sound scripted. That’s a lie. Perfection isn’t the goal, deepening the experience is, probing one’s capacities, identifying and realizing potential. That’s what gets me up in the morning. Every day is its own project, embodying a wealth of relationships, challenges, intimacies, and ambitions. The fundamental question hasn’t changed: what will I make of it? To which the universe will undoubtedly respond: what will you allow it to make of you?
