Thanks for visiting!

This is a blog and newsletter that explores creativity, movement, and learning - and how they might all fit together.

It's for people who aim to approach life with curiosity, energy, and wonder. Who seek a deeper conversation with the world.

Here's the origin story (Fire Jar 001).

It's edited by Jeremy Finch (with many collaborators).

We'll brighten the mind, move the body, warm the heart, and maybe illuminate some of the common threads that make us human.

Core values:

  • Design: Respect your (sacred!) brain-space
  • Listening: Ask for and incorporate feedback
  • Balance: Mind-body, big-small, serious-silly etc.
