Creativity and Play Intertwined in Legal Marketing and in Life
If you’ve ever been to Pearl Paint on Canal Street in China Town New York, then you know what it’s like to be surrounded by every conceivable artist tool necessary to stimulate your creative muse. I went there yesterday, and hadn’t been there since I was an undergrad at Pratt Institute almost 15-years ago.
I went shopping to pick up some supplies for a display of my “Originating Circle”, ie: the people I have regular interactions with, either via conversation or exchanges of goods and services. (I’m sure I’ll have some of the people reading this blog pictured, which is just way too much fun)
I’ll have to post a photo of it when it’s complete, which will be in the next week or so. Why am I doing all this extra work for you may ask…
I was clear that I wasn’t having much fun, and needed a “boost” to push myself to the next level professionally and personally. So, I enrolled in Landmark Education’s Wisdom Unlimited, a year long program, spread over 5-weekends. The participants are professionals from all over the world, and a very exciting group of folk.
The cornerstone of the Wisdom Course is Play — the sheer enjoyment of “being” I the give and take of daily life — with no other motive or agenda…
The course is available to people who are seasoned in the work of Landmark Education and have a fully developed grasp of what it is t to create new possibilities for themselves and others. It is designed for those who value growth and development as a way of living, rather than as a particular experience or one time phenomenon.

After attending our first weekend last week I realized that somehow, over the last few years of having my own company, I’d gotten slightly resigned, cynical and sarcastic. How’d that happen I wonder?
What I already see is much I love having my own business, working with lawyers and the legal marketing community; joining you in your commitments and aligning with what you believe in. I absolutely adore waking up each morning and interacting with and learning from you , all day — every day and am completely committed your and my success.
The joy I get from working with Alain L. Locke Elementary couldn’t be clearer, and how much I love my family is stronger than ever, and I’m getting more exercise daily and having a good time doing it. ; ie; there’s no “Burden of Have to” present, and needless to say, I’m feeling … LIGHTER…
More progress is to come as I work on my display and continue to play. I’ll keep you posted to creative developments happening with Karasma Media and my life.
