More Than Imagined

Last night at 8:56pm the campaign ended, with $22,054, 191 supporters and tears of joy welling up in these eyes of mine.

At the beginning of this process, a good friend sent me a card in the mail, which you can see above. She encouraged me to have faith and promised me that it’d be even more beautiful than I could imagine. Those words resonated with me then, but they ring true and shine electric this morning…

I didn’t know how hard this was going to be. There were times that I wasn’t sure it’d end successfully. But, in the end, it’s been a triumph. Not just numerically, but in intangible ways.

Through this process I’ve reconnected with and strengthened my relationships with many of you, and I’ve met new kindred spirits. We are abundant this morning – not just with the funds we’ve raised, but with the community we’ve built. I am so happy to know you, and so excited to continue to share this journey with you.

Now that the money is there (!) the focus will be on finding and selecting the next Traveler. As you know, we’re doing an OPEN call to find that person. I’ve already received over 20 submissions, which I’ll be pouring over in the coming days. I’ll also be reaching out to you with more specifics on what I’m looking for in the next Traveler. Look out for those details, and please encourage your communities to apply. This next journey is going to be epic, I can feel it…

Alright Family, I’ll be speaking with you soon. This isn’t the end, it’s just the beginning.
