I’m so enamored with the story of Caine and his arcade. I love the imagination of it, I love how it has appealed to the innate generosity in so many people world-wide. I love that it has inspired a renaissance of creative, hands-on play in kids of all ages.

But today, I want to focus on a different part of the story. Today I want to talk about Nirvan Mullick.

This summer, I’m turning the Low Hanging Fruit blog over to you.
The only potential downside of this plan is between now and May 30th I need to help you (yes, you personally) see that
- you have a valuable story to contribute, and
- you are brave enough to share it.
We should talk!
The easiest way to do that is if you would be so kind as to get in touch with me. Then, we can talk about you and the amazing impact you are making in your corner of the world and develop a plan for how you can best share that on the internet. If you are ready to talk, click the link below to schedule a 30 minute chat with me.
I’m ready to chat!
If the idea of talking to me one-on-one about the amazing things you are doing kinda makes you want to throw up, that’s ok.
While I promise I will be absolutely, completely gentle with you– I get how scary it is to put yourself out there–especially the first time.
Would it be easier to talk to me about what your kids are doing? Or what your neighbor is doing? Or to write a post, take a photo, or make a movie about people who inspire you?
If that’s the case, I want to hear about it. Click here to schedule some time to tell me about the amazing people you know.
I love everything about the story of Caine’s Arcade. I love how devoted Caine is. I love how much support he gets from his Dad. I love the filmmaker who maintained his relationship with his own inner child well enough to recognize genius when he saw it.
Is there a Caine in your world who has something important to teach us?
Tell me about it
