Inspirations

Iʼm inspired every day by people and places and art. These are just a few deep and
lasting examples of works that have touched my heart and shaped my vision. I hope
you enjoy them.

Alanis Morisetteʼs Underneath is the best treatise for why personal growth is how we change the world Iʼve ever seen or heard. What we are inside, underneath, is what we create in the world. Period. And focusing outside instead of inside can only be upside down and backwards.:)
avage Gardenʼs Affirmation is a song I love to dance to, sing along with and write my own (new) verses to. We do a Karaoke kind of thing with it at Copia sometimes. Secret fantasy? Putting together an amazing fundraiser project where the band would like to record a new version for iTunesʼ charity sales with some of Copiaʼs new lyrics…
Appleʼs Hereʼs to The Crazy Ones commercial made me cry when I first saw it. From time to time it still can, and it is guaranteed to give me goosebumps even watching it for the 400th time. If it speaks to you, if you are a crazy one, too, weʼd probably work very well together.
Obviously, “the alchemy of work and
life” came from somewhere… tʼwas the ethers, in fact, as I had not yet read this book when I wrote that line. Then I did read this amazing parable and a thousand puzzle pieces of my dharma fit together. Then I walked (some of) the Camino de Santiago, read Coehloʼs The Pilgrimage and
visited the pyramids in Egypt and, well, I became a Pilgrim in Coehloʼs style. Itʼs a way of life. I know some of you know that.
A band. An idea. A colour. An ethos.
Proof that business can change the
world for GOOD.
More proof.
Incredibly inspiring prose.
And people putting those words into
action every day.
