|A one-hour exploration of the fascinating hummingbird.|
When I look back at the last two years (and beyond), I have taken some direction from different sorts of creatures. Some creatures have found their meaning in a rigid organizational structure, some creatures have found their meaning in dollar figures, and some creatures have found their meaning in a set of ideals which they may or may not actually practice in everyday life. Some of the creatures I have looked to for direction run in packs with clearly defined leaders, some of them wander as herds, and some of them are predatory. To most of these creatures, their existence makes perfect sense. It's how they are wired. It's where they are comfortable. It's what they are willing to accept. Whatever. But a perfect environment for one creature is not a perfect environment for every creature.

Hello, my name is Randy Partain. I am a composer and pianist who loves collaboration with other creative thinkers. I am a spiritually-minded atheist who still finds value in ideas from many religious traditions. I can be an incredible strategist and an insightful critic, and I usually listen well when other people speak. I have an internal map that may seem bizarre to some, but when I trust it I can travel like a Ruby-throated Hummingbird. It is a genuine pleasure to be able to introduce myself.
