Each of us are hurtling through space and time on this rock while trying to make sense of all that’s happening around us. We do this through story. We all have stories. We are all in the middle of stories searching for meaning and perspective. We don’t always know how to move forward but we press on nonetheless.


Paradoxically foolish.


Amateur: one who engages in a pursuit, study, science, or sport as a pastime rather than as a profession.

Astronaut: a person who travels beyond the earth's atmosphere.


Each of us endeavors for meaning as explorers and pioneers of our own little worlds.

We press on with basic understandings and principles; often unprepared for the adventure ahead.

Deeper meaning and understanding increases as perspective and the big picture unfolds.


As an astronaut gains perspective by leaving earth’s atmosphere. We seek to use storytelling as our exploration vessel. Each of us an explorer of our own little worlds searching for something more. We press on with little training or provision with curiosity and wonder. 


“We are explorers of stories. The stories of those who press on toward greatness and the unknown in search of greater meaning in the “something more”. If we’re honest none of us really know what we’re doing, but we press on with courage and curiosity.”


“Ordinary people seeking the extraordinary.”
