When time stops

SOMETHING HAPPENED. Yesterday, a watch stopped. Hers. 7.45PM. This was the second time this kind of thing had happened. That is, a watch stopping. That time, his. 8.15PM. Both times, in the middle of a superb conversation that, really, slowed into a moment. Conversations with people that I had just met. That day, or a few days prior. […]

A new plateau

LEGACIES ARE MADE AND BUILT based on the learnings we can articulate clearly, and share. Dialogue makes us gather our ideas and respond to those of others, too. Perspectives can shift and whole rooms of internal awareness can open, if we allow ourselves room to reflect. It’s why I am always taking pictures like this, […]

ffffff

‘HELLO. CAN I ASK YOU A QUESTION?’ ‘Sure.’ ‘What do you think makes a thing noteworthy?’ ‘Makes a thing noteworthy? Is that what you asked?’ ‘Yes.’ ‘Something that is an experience.’ ‘Good answer! Right. So what are you doing at 6PM? Because we’re going to have a conversation salon, on noteworthiness. Yes! And someone just […]

cccccc

‘CAN I JUST… um. This chair-thing? Can I use it? We have one person who is needing a chair-thing, over there.’ ‘No.’ ‘No? Excuse me?’ ‘I got it. For my laptop.’ ‘You got it for your laptop?’ ‘Yes. From over there. I carried it over here, from over there. You can go and get your […]

Tonight is ‘N’ London: NOTEWORTHINESS

MANY THANKS TO THE DOZENS of people in our online and real-life community, S. P. A. C. E., for helping DK connect with the 16 ‘new and different others’ we are meeting for the first time in one moment tonight. TONIGHT IS ‘N’. Here, in London. A year in the making, this one. We are […]

A letter to guests of 3N

ALMOST THERE, now. Once the date is set this sort of moves pretty quickly: finalising the guestlist, sharing the agenda, confirming that you can be there, making sure you know where we’re meeting. That kind of thing. Just like any great party, you have to do all the detail stuff way ahead of time, right? […]

‘N’ London: A year in the making

OKAY. The ’16N’ uplate. We are doing this. ‘N’ is happening in London *very soon*. It’s taken more than a year to set this up. A conversation salon. For just 16 people. Our theme for London is NOTEWORTHINESS. What’s remarkable? Why do we think so? We did ‘N’ in Bangkok in October  2015 (‘What is […]

‘N’ London is ON

5.56PM. TODAY I AM GOING THROUGH THE DIP. The one that they tell you is important to ‘push through,’ as my favorite guru-watching, Headspace-listening friends and colleagues like to tell me, when I am not wanting to hear it, when I am not-wanting-to-hear-it and wanting to just sit and think, alone, quietly, all day. With […]

‘N’ London is in play

THIS IS THE BOARD. 16 tickets. Some of them are taken. Some are still left. The people who choose to join are people I have invited, and who have said yes. Going through the process of choosing a date, together. For a 16-way blind date on the topic, for ‘N’ in London, NOTEWORTHINESS. Discovery. Sharing. […]

Seeking interesting people in Berlin and Hanoi

QUICKLY. A short note. About ‘onceness.’ And ’16N.’ I’m looking for interesting people to invite to a 16-way blind date. ‘Interesting’ has a lot of definitions, I’m aware. I guess for me, the kinds of people who would say yes and show up to something as wacky as an ‘N’ deems theme exceptionally intriguing. I […]

The people from before

I’M IN A DILEMMA. It might seem really strange to want to go to the cities of the world and find random people and gather them in one moment of conversation. Each. One moment each. In 16 cities: 16 people in each city. For about two hours, each. So they can meet each other. Yeah, […]

Add 62

TODAY I AM GOING TO UPDATE the page that tells the story of ‘where is N’ now? The story is happening. There are conversations going on. This is really exciting now, there is momentum, let’s talk about momentum! Gumption gumption gumption. And magic. Flow. And what’s even better than all of that? Guests. So happy […]
