What Does a Community of Multipotentialites LOOK Like?

Why You Should Embrace Your “Amateurish” Side and Get Over Yourself (Occasionally)

I just got back from my favourite place on earth: music camp. I’ve been going on and off for 29 years (since I was 5)! The camp is called Cammac, and it’s located in the woods by a lake, midway between Montreal and Ottawa. It’s a camp for kids, teens, and adults; families usually go […]

From non-goal-oriented art-making like sketching and songwriting, to spending time with old friends, to simply paying attention to the world […]

I Need Your Suggestions! What Would You Do on a Personal Retreat?

Hey multipod friends! I made a video for you today (with help from Gorse). Sorry about the phone noises in the middle. I was going to re-record the video but then I thought, why edit reality? Those noises just help illustrate how badly I need to unplug… Here are the blog posts I referenced: In a […]

Which Multipotentialite Season Are You In?

There are times when we’re running full speed on a project (or a handful of projects). We’re deep in it and we feel the momentum. When new, random ideas pop into our minds, we push them to our “someday lists” without much angst. We’re too in love with our main thing(s) right now. There are […]

How to Choose the Right Path When There are SO MANY POSSIBILITIES

To my great surprise, I’ve written two books. The first was non-fiction, and I spent the entire process worrying about making factual errors.
