Lights unto Us

La Crosse “Rotary Light Display”

A Light Display on the Mississippi River

A view of the Rotary Light display at Riverside Park in La Crosse, Wisconsin – with a tickle of Handel in the background.

In the middle of the piece you may hear a voice which sounds out of place. It is a comment by my dear friend and I left it in intentionally. It seems an appropriate comment on the way we seem to want to move into stressful and “fast”.

End of Expectations – My playful son

My son Peter started playing drums when he was in middle school. His kit was in the basement. I don’t know how many different layers of padding and insulation I stapled to the walls down there.

There is an “under story” here. Peter is an addict. One of the lucky ones. He has been free and clean of drugs and alcohol for six years proving that one can front a metal band AND be sober. He is active in AA in Seattle and sponsors many young people who are trying to stay clean and sober.

I am VERY proud of him.

Here is his third (or fourth) band since then doing a parody of  “The Office”. I watched it for about a minute before I knew it was him. (Peter is on the one on the left0.



End of Expectations on My Space. Listen or read the lyrics to the “Remembrance”.

Peter wrote an honest and scary account of his drift into addiction called “The California Kid”. It is in draft form at present.

Meet Your Playful Self

The Workshop – For Teachers, Managers, and Parents


Most board games cost about $15 -$20

The Meet Your Playful Self – Workshop

The last half of the book, Meet Your Playful Self; The Workshop, gives you a detailed, step-by-step map for your own playful group.

The paths or exercises, derived from 40 years of working with improvisers, offer you a short cut to your intuitive, playful self by-passing years of trial and error, frustration, and confusion you might experience on your own.

A decorative cell phone cover cost $9.99

Teachers, Coaches, Youth Leaders

If you are a teacher, coach, or youth leader, you can lift segments to practice with your students. Whether you teach History, Math, Phys ed, or Soccer; you can use the workshop to explore listening as a skill and offer your students a guide to understand when they are listening and when they are not listening.

A ticket to a Lady Gaga concert costs $95 – $188

Managers, Business Leaders

If you are a manager, you can use the workshop paths “Talking Fast”, “Yes…and…”, or “Counting and Listening”; and I promise you will be far ahead in building the “team” spirit that will lift the morale in a department, erase petty conflicts, and as a result, increase productivity, profit, and performance.

A scratch off lottery ticket can cost $20.00

Parents

If you are a parent, you can use the workshop like you might play the game of charades with your children and their friends. You can play the interactive games like “being”, “Zip, Zap, Zoop”, “Clap Around”, or “Playing with an Object” to enjoy the intuitive, playful nature of your own children. As Plato says, “You can learn more about a person in one hour of play than a year of conversation.” What’s more – it works!

A “Would You Rather” card game stocking stuffer costs $40.00

Improvisers, Directors, Actors

If you are an improviser, you know to well how easily the magical intuitive moment escapes you in your work. We don’t even know the why or how, but before we know it we find ourselves in a conceptual, unproductive trap. The exercises in the Workshop offer the best conceptual routes like “The Three Levels of Acceptance” or “Push to 10” to keep your group in the intuitive groove, grind, and gristle.
