Hi folks

My name is John Schengber. I am a brand-builder, writer, and environmentalist. My life goal is to transform America's relationship to the natural world through storytelling, advertising, and diplomacy. 
I send out a newsletter with a poem, 
a picture, and an occasional blog post.

to do list

Divorce The Car. Love The Bus. Make I-95 A High Speed Train From Maine To Miami.

Learn The Name Of Every Tree. Be At Peace With Time. Dive In Headfirst And Naked.

Ask Questions. Sit In Silence. Sit In Silence With The Answer.

Strive To Be A Seed In This Moment, And A Blossom In The Next.

Let Wild Patience Set The Pace. Drift Not Into Carelessness But Into Open Possibility.

Let Work Be An Intellectual Voyage Of Discovery.

Make Every Person Feel Important. Remember What Papa Doc Said On His Death Bed.

Know That Radical Change Is Never Too Late Nor Inevitable.

Find Balance Between Unflappable Personal Drive And Deep Awareness That The Self Is Small. That The Rest Is Big. That Together Small And Big Are Everything.

Cultivate More Than Accomplish, Listen More Than Speak.

Expect No Ending, No Grand Finale, No Trophy For Your Trials.

Only The Soft Violet Hum Of Onward.
