Adventures with Humans

I am fascinated with people, and have, in an odd way, been honing my ability as an observer without realizing it, until now. There is no judgement here. My intention with this offering is that you will find delight, inspiration, and perhaps recognize a part of yourself in some of these essays.

If I should manage to draw you into the deepness, the richness of our shared humanity, then I would be the happiest.

A few words from the desk of Suzanne Crone

What the humans had to say...

  • …everything’s escalating so fast, and I think it needs to just go back a little ‘old school.’ Slow down a bit. Bring out recorders instead of phones. Hand-write. You know it’s amazing how many kids don’t know how to write cursive nowadays. They, you know like just small things in the long run will be big things. Like reading a clock. You know? They can’t read the clock with the hands. They have to read the digital ones. It’s very scary.
