Welcome to my online home. I talk about business writing and how to make our words better—more open and intimate and beautiful. There’s also plenty of jasmine tea drinking and cloud watching. I’m glad you’re here.
Letters for the Reckless are monthly musings (with occasional notes in-between) on how we give voice to our true selves—with all our human imperfections and inconsistencies—and awaken our business writing through tender wholeheartedness.
The only way to find your true self is by recklessness and freedom...
But remember always that the true self is not a fixed thing… the true self is always in motion like music, a river of life, changing, moving, failing, suffering, learning, shining.
That is why you must freely and recklessly make new mistakes… And do not try to be consistent, for what is true to you today may not be true at all tomorrow, because you see a better truth.
