About This Site

Hi, from Michael! I'm a dad, life partner, dj and designer living in Northern California. In life I’m exploring the question, “what matters now?” and this blog jibes with each change in the journey.

I’ve been starting with a manifesto for myself, based on exploring what matters to me. On a trail run these words came to me. I’m considering them my manifesto for the moment.

I move because if I’m standing still, I’m dying.

I create, as my soul knows no better way to be free.

I love like it’s the only thing that matters.

This is a pretty good description of the actions and people at the top of the list of what matters to me. It's simple enough for me to follow. I move. I make. I love. I think in bullet points when I run, I guess.

There are other things I need to work on. Forgiveness, non-attachment, openness, giving and accepting love freely are some big ones. I could go into the deeper list of things I value and could focus on, but for the moment, I'm working on prioritizing life around the things in this list.
