I know this is gonna be shocking, but I’m not a big sports guy. This isn’t a new thing I’ve developed later in life, my lack of interest in all things run chase ball started when I was small. There could have been a chance given my strong athletic stature in my youth and my dad and brothers played things - but unlike them, I’m half-blind. Through a super random uncorrectable genetic defect, I can’t see out of one eye so I don’t have real depth perception, which makes playing any sports requiring hand/eye coordination nearly impossible.
Despite this personal peculiarity I’ve come to love about myself - thinking about HOME, I was drawn to this idea of hitting a home run, something I’ve never done on a baseball diamond myself so I can’t really know how it feels. My observation is that it’s usually a nerve-racking chore to get around the bases… but a home run, you’ve got nothing to worry about, baby. Smack and way back, you’re safe everywhere you go they can’t touch you!
Man, I want a home run. That place where you feel safe, like fearlessly wearing a meat belt through a tiger cage because the tigers know you’ve earned their respect and safe passage. To me, that’s what it’s gotta feel like running the bases after hitting a long one. Just, free in front of a razor-fanged-foe.
The theme HOME is super cool, props to Kansas City for picking this one. I’m excited to be back at CreativeMornings after 10 months almost totally away, and 15 months since a regular event. Everything planned is awesome. There’s a lot to do still - mostly outreach could really use all of your help sharing/inviting/re-posting through the links below. There’s some space for more creative tasks too, which you’ll just have to email me and stake your claim, that’s how this program goes and if nobody steps up we go without but I have a feeling you guys are just as ready to dance as I am.
Claim what’s open below, and the big one here… if you know someone at a company or organization that can make a tax-deductible donation to support this program (new development this past spring) please make an introduction or forward me a contact.
Let’s hit some balls,
