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...

  • It’s…we’ve gotta get going here. You’ve gotta have hope. You’ve gotta have faith. And lotsa love and peace, right? Don’t’ be forcin’ people right? It doesn’t work. Peace and love. War sucks. Violence sucks. Coercion sucks–it’s waaay harder than peace. So do it! So I’m hopeful.
