Meddle 01 was… indescribable. Hatched in the mind of a very generous man, Ted Pearlman, the event was unlike anything I have ever experienced. Officially known as This is Meddle, its objective is to gather creative, influential people to tackle specific subjects. The subject for this first Meddle was how to find time for passion projects.
Why do we have dreams but don’t pursue them? Sometimes, we leave our projects on the drawing board because they seem too insane or we are unsure of what they will become, or not become. There are other reasons that are more mundane, like managing our time well, or not following through because we don’t know why they are relevant in our lives. All of these were discussed at Meddle but not resolved.
In the meantime, a very magical experience evolved. Delicious food was shared thanks to Cali Rivera our chef. Artisans, designers, photographers, writers, shared ideas and connected. Sheeps stampeded us on the slopes of the idyllic Cotswolds. Knights came alive when least expected. All of this became the data points for a conclusion, one that has not yet been identified.
Meddle is one of Ted’s passion projects. Like all passion projects, it is often a work in progress but you have to get started somewhere. In the days to come, we will coagulate all of this, tie a bow on it, and call it Meddle One. In the meantime, each one of us is no doubt inspired to believe in our “Frograbbit” and make it real.
