“The spider is a repairer. If you bash into the web of a spider, she doesn’t get mad. She weaves and repairs it.”  

– Louise Bourgeois, sculpture of Maman

This month, we find ourselves weaving our new normal. While there are still lots of uncertains, what is for certain is our ability to adapt and shift with the uncertainty.


The Web remains open for business, even when business is not usual. 
In The Art of Gathering: How We Meet and Why it Matters by Priya Parker, she writes:

“‘Chill’ is selfishness disguised as kindness . . . ‘Chill’ is the idea that it’s better to be relaxed and low-key, better not to care, better not to make a big deal. It is in the words of Alana Massey’s essay, ‘Against Chill,’ a ‘laid-back attitude, an absence of neurosis.’ It ‘presides over the funeral of reasonable expectations.’ It ‘takes and never gives.’”

The Web is always working toward the art of gathering. When it comes to creating a safe, productive, inclusive and considerate place for members to gather, we still can’t chill during the COVID-19 crisis.

Education
Member Lunch: Updates from Dr. Amber on COVID-19
Thursday, July 9 at 12pm
Since we last spoke to Dr. Amber Schmidtke in March about the uncertainty of COVID-19, we’ve seen a lot of change in our world. And a lot has changed for Dr. Amber! Her daily update newsletter and Facebook page are in huge demand, as she translates public health statistics into information the public can use. She will share with us the latest for our community and address your COVID-19 questions and concerns.

UNTAMED Inspo: “For the rest of your life: Continue to shorten the gap between the knowing and the doing.”

Fellowship
Web After Dark: Let’s Discuss Dolly!
Thursday, June 16 at 8pm
Parton me, but do you love Dolly? Bring your favorite Dollyisms, song lists and words of affection for the American icon who turned 9 to 5 into a working woman’s battlecry, all while creating one of the longest-reigning, multi-hyphen entertainment-philanthropy-philsophy-literacy-tourism legacies that continues to make the world a better place.

UNTAMED Inspo: “Maybe our imagination isn’t where we go to escape reality but where we go to remember it. Maybe inside our Imagination are our marching orders.”

Motivation
Member Moment: Megan Carson
Thursday, July 23 at 8pm
Member Megan Carson is the owner of Sparks Yoga and has been our peaceful, mindful leader during Tuesday Meditations. She will share her story of investing heart and soul into service, business, loss, recovery, resilience and presence. She’s been there and back again and here for feeling it all.

UNTAMED Inspo: “There is no glory except straight through our story.”
