Welcome to Pursuit of Spark!  Join us for conversations about creative approaches to the challenges, possibilities, and pleasures of everyday life and work.

Thanks to Dick Nodell, Diane Thomson, and our intrepid intern Sarah Popov, we have much to share with you over the next few months in Work Mysteries and Creative Organizing.  If you have a question for Dick or Diane, send it to us at info (at)  We would love to have you join the conversation!

If you're in New York City this fall, please join me at The Metropolitan Museum of Art for Spark Conversations.  My guests in November will include singer/songwriter Dar Williams, designer Eileen Fisher, and pianist Simone Dinnerstein, as well as curators from The Met.  You can find out more about this new series here.

We look forward to hearing from you!
