“I alone cannot change the world, but I can cast a stone across waters to create many ripples.” – Mother Teresa
– I have lived my life as a pebble tosser – picking up ideas and projects, molding them with my thoughts and intentions, and then gentling tossing them into the water of the world to see what impact they might have. Sometimes the ripples are immediate and obvious. Other times they seem to come back to my shore years later, like an echo bouncing back across the canyon.
I have recently become fascinated by how the ripples caused by others have touched my life. A book recommended, a gift given, an insight shared – all tiny ripples that make me who I am. When I was younger I used to think of myself as a rock, an island of self-made determination. Now that vision has expanded. I see the rock was just one pebble on a vast shoreline, a shoreline that is constantly in flux, constantly changing with the ripples and tides.
This site is about those ripples.
