I did a monologue last week, so normally this would be an interview week, but I’m leading a LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® team building retreat tomorrow for my consultancy, and things are down to the wire, and I decided to do an improvisational podcast instead, because that just takes less time than editing an interview.
So I thought I’d share some learnings from this last weekend, when I taught a calligraphy workshop for the Friends of Calligraphy.
First, some background:
I started doing calligraphy way back in 1995, and I taught my first calligraphy workshop in 1999 — a calligraphy style called Neuland, based on a typeface called Neuland, designed by Rudolf Koch in 1923.
And here we are, almost 20 years later, and I was invited to teach the same workshop again.
I’ve taught it a few times since that original class, but it’s been a long time. Maybe 14 years..?
Anyway… Listen to the episode for some massive failures and big successes from this past weekend.

Has the Creative Sandbox Way™ podcast made a difference in your life? Would you like to be featured on the podcast?
I love sharing listener stories, so if you have a story of how listening to the podcast has changed your life for the better in some way — big or small — I want to feature you in a Listener Spotlight.
Here’s how it works:
1. Just log into iTunes and leave a rating and review. (If you don’t know how to do that, you’ll find step-by-step instructions at creativesandboxway.com/itunes-review).
2. Then copy and paste what you wrote in your review into an email, and send it to me, along with why you want to be featured in a Listener Spotlight. How has the podcast made a difference in your life? You can email me at creativesandboxway.com/contact.
If I pick you for a Listener Spotlight, we’ll have a relaxed, fun conversation, and the recording of our conversation will be part of a future episode! How cool is that?
