“Hey Mark! This is Olivia Mills. …Today I went on your website and ended up sitting for hours reading everything … I cried, smiled, and laughed. When tears came to my eyes, I knew this website you created was a strong thing. The story about “Amy” was uplifting, and terrifying at the same time. Those are very strong emotions. … Loved meeting you, and now BEING-PART of the website. … Your Pal — Olivia Mills March 26, 2019

From our hearts to yours, we are so touched by conversations with those who love BEING-A-PART of our little endeavor. One thing our friend Mia Isabel Bayuga said was especially touching. She pointed out:
“Mark, you take incredible portraits … enjoying the joy expressed ... it’s less about what we say and more about what we do … connecting with people … doing life with them … you are doing exactly that … in the race of life being the checkpoint … being the water station … being the cheering section ... helping runners complete their race .. Let’s applaud you today for being brave !” — March 11, 2019

INEFFABLE: “Too great or extreme to be expressed or described in words. — ‘the ineffable mysteries of the soul’”

How do we teach heart? Love? Ineffable.
Our space is your place to belong. We unconditionally invite you personally to be WHO-YOU-ARE!
In our culture we are impassioned by a deep desire to BELONG, to be ACCEPTED, and to be AFFIRMED — Brene Brown wrote, "A deep sense of love and belonging is an irreducible need of all people. We are biologically, cognitively, physically, and spiritually wired to love, to be loved, and to belong. When those needs are not met, we don't function as we were meant to. We break. We fall apart. We numb. We ache. We hurt others. We get sick.”
We invite you TO-LOVE, TO-BE-LOVED, and TO-FULLY-BELONG as long as you wholeheartedly embrace our three mandates as follows:
1) TREAT ALL PEOPLE WITH DIGNITY, RESPECT, & SELF-WORTH
2) ENTER EVERY CONVERSATION WITH AN OPEN MIND
3) Be the CIRCLE
Where’s a circle’s beginning? End? If 7.5 billion here on planet earth circle up holding hands, who’s first? Last? Why do some condescendingly feel more equal than others? We are all unique individuals and diversity is whqt makes life so interesting. Agreed?
