Let’s jump off the train and build a boat.

The train is constrained to the tracks and it’s momentum makes it almost impossible to slow, but the boat…. aaah the boat is very different thing.

Boats set sail into the unknown, subject only to wind, wave and weather.

Boats can be lifeboats, preserving wisdom and understanding while the storm rages on overhead.

Boats can be arks, safeguarding the life of the world while the floodwaters rise.

Boats can carry us into adventure away from the shores of the current paradigm, onto those unseen shores of a future not yet rewritten.

Find your people and build a boat.

Build a local community to serve the world and preserve the life of a piece of land.

Or set sail into the wider world, interrupting the destruction and healing the wounds, crafting connections and changing minds.

Build a boat, a lifeboat, an ark, a galleon of adventure and imagination destined for unknown lands.

Build it now.

The ice is melting, the waters are rising and we’re going to have to let go of the shore.
