Shane Koyczan

My tag line for the blog says it is a blog about “Adventures in repairing and sailing boats (and other stuff)”.  This is one of those “other stuff” posts.

Today I want to let you know about Shane Koyczan.

He is a spoken word performer from Canada who is so authentic I can’t watch a performance without being moved. When he talks about bullies, he’s describing what I went through. That was over 30 years ago and I still have scars.

Here he is performing “Blueprint for a Breakthrough” at a TedX presentation.  This “talk” is just over 20 minutes long, but worth the time spent.  If it’s not for you, that’s ok – if it is, it would be nice if you let me know in the comments.

If you can identify with his message, he has a kickstarter project going “A Bruise on light” that I’m supporting and that could use your help.
