"There's not a word yet for old friends who've just met"
- Jim Henson
Our Raison d'etre
We're here to transform the world through the power of friendship, creating a heart coherence tuned with compassion, respect, appreciation, and love. With this bond, our towns flourish in all ways, and the world is a friendlier place.
Who, What, Where?
A documentary photographer, a code poet (computer programmer), and 2 unlimited artistic ambassadors of love (our kids), creating face to face, arm in arm, connections, so unlike the platforms of "likes" and "followers".
The Problem Facing our Society:
Lack of true friends
False sense of friendship
Four letter word: "BUSY"
Social and physical isolation
Racial, economic injustice,
We match people in neighborhoods as well as corporations,
using Nicomachean Ethics,
creating the space for truly
HEARING and SEEING each other,
beginning a social movement that creates
a friendlier world through compassion
Our platonic matchmaking service connecting
people in person with their true friends
(small tribe to global tribe) within neighborhoods,
Friendly gatherings (mixers), speaking engagements.
We can relearn the art of friendship.
YOU ARE THE UNDERLYING MAGIC,
revealing yourself through your presence

“Our Friendly World” with Fawn and Matt – the podcast
“Our Friendly World” is about The Art of Friendship. We seek understanding about each other, our society, our culture, our history, life experiences and new ideas that transform our relationships within our corporations, our families, and neighborhoods around the world. Feeling is POWER, and our words (our conversations) create the feeling, healing, and creation of a wonderful existence. We change the world with the friends we show up for.
