an invocation for beginnings

I adore Ze Frank. I don't know him, of course. But I used to watch/read and follow his site and projects and videos. He stopped doing his bit for a while and now he is back. I found his message just as inspiring to me, as a new full-time writer, as it could be to anyone. Enjoy it. Enjoy it and get started.

Ze Frank is awesome.

Are you familiar with the Vlogbrothers? They started a few years back and were inspired by Ze. Two brothers making videos back and forth to stay in contact with each other, they quickly attracted a community of self-proclaimed nerds. Their videos are often thoughtful, funny, and entertaining.

Yes. Facing a tough choice in my life to stay in a job that is slowly killing my soul (but providing $ for our family) and leaving to pursue something better, but more risky... not sure what I should do but this came at an opportune moment for me today. So, thank you, Jenna (and Ze)

So many good lines in this video! I especially liked the part where he talked about extending generosity to one's self. :)

That was super. I think I need to listen to it daily as I have coffee to start my day. Thanks for sharing that.

Thanks Jenna,
He is so astute and speaks volumes to just about anyone... who will listen and then ... think. Ah, such a lost art for some and not yet learned for others. There IS hope :)
