August 28--Change? Hell, yes!

Be daring, be different, be impractical, be anything that will assert integrity of purpose and imaginative vision against the play-it-safers, the creatures of the commonplace, the slaves of the ordinary.  --Cecil Beaton

    "We've always done it this way." I worked at a church for several years, and while I loved the job, churches are notorious for living by that mantra. It was often maddening. Don't rock the boat, maintain the status quo. 
    That cannot be done. We either evolve or regress. Change, evolution, is terrifying to some--we've seen that clearly in recent years. I get it. Life is uncertain. But it is the daring, different and impractical that will bring about the desperately-needed consciousness shift on planet Earth. Those fighting to return to the "good old days" are not helpful. 
    One of the sayings Ana Forrest hammered into us during yoga teacher training was "evolve or die." I'm good with "evolve."
