Leave them wanting more is the often recited intention. "Just because it’s there" might work for those wanting to climb Everest or run the London Marathon. The time will arrive in the not too distant future that the Ou...

Conspiracies - PCM creative in action

ConspiraciesJanuary 23, 2021I have always been fascinated by the supernatural and conspiracies. The ultimate blend emerging over recent years being the Mandela Effect. The collective recollection of an event or object being recalled differently than the majority consciousness. See Bernstein Bears, KitKat and Nelson Mandela’s Funeral.But my interest is not in the conspiracy or unexplained occurrence but in why people want or need the conspiracy. The mutated sentiment of the closest collaborati...

Distilling Complexity

Distillation (metaphorically) subjects a source to scrutiny before producing an interpretation in a simple yet considered form. In the literal process it’s reducing a liquid to its purest form. Making sense of the business world I entered following my career phase 1 (1994 - 2005) on the back of the entertainment industry I didn’t know what I didn’t know.

Note... in acknowledgment

Typepad is the origin platform of my blogging stared in 2007. This blog was born from the loss of Posterous. A way to move toward the content and away from the platform. Being present! There’s an irony against what I’m writing now. A friend once said ‘Presence is the new Dial Tone’. Presence isn’t new anymore and mindfulness is our proverbial dial tone. I have surfed a wave, sailed at the head of a curve and platforms I valued most have fallen leaving behind gap and less in thier wake. Po...

#69unbox - tagging nostalgia

This time last week Dan and I were building bookcases, the weekend prior constructing desks. As I write this, I have a bookcase filling with books and a small step closer to unpacking the many boxes not just those from the old house but boxes already filled and in some cases never unpacked when I moved into the last house. It's brought me to a place where I can tackle head on the sometimes crippling sentimental attachment to the palpable nostalgia and memories evoked when in the presence of t...
