Week ending 12/12/2020
One day, you will look back, and see that all along you were blooming.Morgan Harper Nichols
By Creative Coordinator, Victoria Lynn Hall
I like reading these newsletters and seeing what I and my fellow contributors have managed to create and/or curate each week gathered in one place – even when it isn’t an abundant output.
I don’t expect Amplifire Project to be a year round rose garden. I see it more as a patch of wildflowers. And this “Weekly Gathering” is the bouquet we make out of whatever has taken root and come to bloom here. No matter how humble or sparse, I hope you see interest and potential in these efforts, as I do. And I hope that even when some efforts enter more dormant seasons – our collaborative spirit can keep us steadily growing year round.
If you have an idea or story that needs a place to take root and grow, I’d love to hear about it. Write me at Victoria@AmplifireProject.com

In an effort to keep this newsletter organized and further promote action items, we have given them their own page. We will just be sharing the newest items with you each week here.
