Standing on the Edge of a Cliff

Over the next few days, it could be you don’t receive a daily email from me.

Which pleases me none whatsoever because it’s my mission and self-assigned duty to give you something to chew on each day, but…

Hey come on, I’m standing on the edge of a cliff here. At least that’s how it feels.

Tonight, clients arrive to stay. Tomorrow, we’re hanging our art in a gallery, and the inauguration is on Friday.

And me, I’m here trying to organise stuff – which is not my hobby and not my strong suit.

Meanwhile, a flight was rescheduled, a parcel with art is hopefully arriving on time, and… well, it’s all a bit hectic. Fun, but hectic.

And all the while, I keep having this feeling that I’m standing at the edge of cliff. This big sense of joyful foreboding, of meeting the lovely people I’ve been coaching for a year…

And our first international group show… wow.

And, that’s just the start. Because this Cabal Creative group that we created, that’s not just a happy-go-lucky litter of artists.

I mean, we want to do something bigger. Something that has an impact – way beyond the effect it could have for us.

Me, I’d like to see the Cabal Creative grow into a movement.

Of course I have no idea if we’ll make that happen, but we’ll make a damn good run for it.

Because hey, together humanity can do pretty amazing things. Much better than we could on our own.

And that’s the purpose of the group: to create collective forward momentum – for ourselves, and for others to join in with.

The rising tide raises all ships.

Look at us, we’re playing tsunami!

Anyway, I’m excited. Slightly confused. Occasionally nervous.

And so, SO happy that all this is happening!

So bear with me if I disappear for a few days. Normal service will continue on Monday.

Meanwhile… what could you do, that has an impact for you, and then for others, so that then the effect comes back to you…?

Cheers,

​Martin
