I Need Help

As part of the ongoing reorganization of my personal practice of being, I’ve been observing one primary rule above all others: go where you’re needed.

My senses are always alert for requests for help and I jump at every opportunity to serve. Living this way for the past 6 months has shown this to be the fastest path to genuinely exotic, beautiful and transformative experiences. And the experience points are what I’m here for, after all.

So, here comes my turn: I need help.

A key player within The Vanderbilt Republic is moving on. Jeffrey Woldan (our Technologist since 2010) has been a dreamlike collaborator, and the distance we’ve covered in almost two years staggers me. What he joined and what he leaves bear resemblance in name only. VR’s sharpening of purpose and consistent successes have at their root Jeff’s constancy, capability, and heart.

As VR has matured, so have we all, and this is the right time for flow.

It’s not quite a goodbye—once VR, always VR—and it’s a natural progression that I’m embracing fully. But a certain wistfulness lingers. The early days, they carry a beauty all their own. And this is another sign that they’re over.

Thank you, Jeff. So much.

The content of our current Agency page represents the zenith of VR’s 2011 incarnation. It was (and remains) a glorious creation. But it’s also the rearview mirror.

The Vanderbilt Republic is right now transforming from the inside out, from deep within. This is an extremely purposeful time. Our next Technologist is going to join a team right now working at the next level, and her/his contribution will shape the future of this young movement for years to come.

See the ad on Craigslist – TECHNOLOGIST SOUGHT – and please share it (or this post, or both) with the right folks.

You, dear reader, have my future in your hands, and that’s okay with me.
