Question posed to me by the lovely, Heather Plett, who is launching the journal, Pathfinder, today. My answer is below.
While I have been supported and loved into the work of my heart by many kind friends and family, I would say that I have always been led by my own internal compass. If I can get quiet enough to listen, I will always find my own “true north” and then those same friends and family give me the courage to follow where that leads. My path - finding it, walking it, blazing it if I have to - is always located at the intersection of myself and my beloveds, the personal and the collective, the known and unknown. The soulful and the strategic.
While there’s a lot in the answer above, I want to focus this particular post on the last pairing: the soulful and the strategic.
