Ripples #793: Cultivating Seeds.
A splash of inspiration
from The Ripples Guy
4 August 2014

See below for the scoop.

I want to cultivate
the seed that was placed in me
until the last small twig has grown.
-Kathe Kollwitz, shared by Julie in Eugene, OR

It's good to leave each day behind,
like flowing water,
free of sadness.
Yesterday is gone and its tale told.
Today new seeds are growing.

I am very excited to announce that some seeds we have been cultivating for a really long time have finally produced results, and in a few weeks it will be time to share the bounty: unleashing an refreshed website and newsletter!

The basic format will remain: Ripples will continue to arrive on Monday mornings via email containing a PEBBLE, a BOULDER, and a PONDER. You'll hopefully enjoy the new look and feel of the layout; in addition, we will be relying on Mailchimp for sending the emails out to help us ensure that everyone who wants Ripples receives them (several thousand of our subscribers have lost access to their weekly splashes because of spam filtering).

WE WILL SKIP RIPPLES NEXT MONDAY (August 11) but plan to be back the following week. I will post updates to our Facebook page so head over there if you don't see Ripples on August 18th:

In the meantime, take some time over the next two weeks to identify and celebrate any successes at work, school, and/or life that have sprouted from seeds of your own effort that have been cultivated over the past few months, years, or decades.

Join Me
by Danny Wallace (Penguin, NY). This is an easy and fun read! Danny tells his tale of posting a newspaper ad that asks, quite simply, “Join Me!” Dozens, and then hundreds, and yes THOUSANDS of people eventually join him before he has decided exactly WHY he wants them to join him. I don’t think it will spoil the story to tell you that he ends up creating a “karma army;” you really need to read HOW and WHY he makes his decisions. Ripply, indeed!
