The sound of an exploding brain

Well, ok, it didn't really explode but I am certainly overwhelmed with information. The course this week is awesome and the people amazing. We are talking about ways to ultimately transform our world through our work as consultants to Community Benefit Organizations (because nonprofits are not "non" anything". Just the change in terminology causes a shift in thinking beyond one organization to the whole community.

It is exciting and I feel like I have so much more to learn.

Off to get my mind blown some more.

P.S. The whole class went to see the Soloist last night. Whatever the critics may think, one of my classmates has worked with the LAMP community and was pleased with the portrayal of their work. 500 residents of Skid Row were involved in the filming.

We are taking our social rehab clients to see The Soloist. They've been talking about it for a long time.

That's awesome to know about the Soloist! T wants to see it... but not as bad as he wanted to see Wolverine:-)

You may want to invest in Duct Tape, it will keep your head intact. Because exploding brains are messy.
