Be right back...

When emails become blog posts. A note from Mixolo's founder on the future of Mixolo....

Hello Team Mixolo:

If you're reading this, you've survived a pandemic. Namaste.

Writing you regarding the return of Mixolo, with no definitive date, increases my now ever-present anxiety, a likely side effect of the pandemic. Falling back into my old line of work has made me value safety over uncertainty.

Safe choices have kept the lights on for me during a time when so many others lost all opportunities previously available to them. I'm grateful. I've been an entrepreneur for 3/4 of my working life, but failure doesn't get any easier. It still sucks. Nonetheless, it's necessary to move forward.

The planning for the Mixolo relaunch has begun, and your feedback on what you want from Mixolo has been invaluable; however, I am forever changed by the great lockdown of my lifetime. Time now feels illusory in nature. It will take how long it takes. One foot in front of the other is the overarching strategy.

If you've been with us for a while, you'll remember that I used to "comfort blog" each time a natural disaster or mass killing took place. Mixoloists would thank me for my messages. I thought I was making a real difference.

Despite my anxiety, Mixolo's mission to increase IRL human connection, feels more important than ever. There's an abundance of fear and disconnection that has occurred in the past year or so.

Is discomfort the new comfort?

Mass killings are now a daily occurrence. Democracy is being touted as a failed experiment. I am often left speechless and feeling utterly helpless witnessing present attacks on the humanity of historically marginalized people.
