A man named Michael Singer once remarked, “Daily work is fun when you accept that your work is just what you do with yourself while you’re spinning on a planet through empty space.” The fact that I can even type these sentences is wonderfully absurd. So, if we’re all just passing through, then the least we can do is do right by each other.
Spacebar Projects is one byproduct of a personal journey I’ve embarked on to know, love, and understand myself better, embracing the gifts and talents that I can offer to the world, in the name of the greater good. My gifts and talents live alongside yours. And so do my vulnerabilities and shortcomings and things to work on, which I also have come to embrace as part of me, not as separate things to be vanquished. We’re all a constant work in progress, hoping to be useful and to be loved, looking for opportunities to aid in others’ successes and share love back to them. I think organizations are a constant work in progress too, so if my consultancy can contribute to the achievement of mission statements and show love to the people behind those statements in the process, then this is all worthwhile.

I’m looking forward to whatever comes from hanging this more public shingle. I could have tinkered with the business model, and my editorial copy, and my logo, and my website, forever, but what good comes of toiling in obscurity towards an impossible goal of perfection? I’d rather aspire to be great, accept my best effort as enough, and get after it as your partner!
I want to take a moment to thank everyone who helped me, in myriad ways, reach this point. You know who you are. A special shout out to Kym Abrams, Will Perez, and Jason Schifferer at KAD/WellHouse for contributing their gifts and talents as designers and programmers, and to Bill Oakley (Words & Pictures) for making that initial connection when this whole business existed on a legal pad and nowhere else. The And Group’s Sara O’Mara – her name belongs here too. Wow. Talk about the power of encouragement.
Here’s to finally being ready to be the person I’m supposed to be. With that, I encourage you to embrace being you, and no one else. We need you.
Open for business.
