Dear CatchMercurial readers,
Aside from yesterday’s unscheduled resending of a blog post (apologies for that; train travel is only a dream for now), it’s been a long time since you’ve heard from me, for reasons entirely unrelated to the current crisis. Speaking of which, I truly hope you and your loved ones are all well. Perhaps this email comes to you under the unfamiliar heading “Stories for Solutions”. This is because, as of yesterday, the website CatchMercurial no longer exists — or, at least, not in its original form.
Firstly, I want to say thank you for accompanying me this far. Some of you started reading at the very start when I created this website while sleeping on a friend’s rooftop in Barcelona. Others tuned in as I shared stories of change and curiosity from my old home of Berlin.
Catchmercurial.com is now Storiesforsolutions.com. Why the change? CatchMercurial was a vessel to capture and curate the fleeting, far-flung and miscellaneous stories I met. It grew and shifted shape as I did, as my path changed and I followed it to a career in telling stories that can (hopefully) accelerate the change to a more sustainable and equitable future.
My professional transition has now reached the point where tales of the mercurial are no longer as important to me as the core stories that define what we do and why we do it. My focus is now telling the core stories of businesses, organisations and individuals who work to reshape society for people and planet. Working as a brand storytelling consultant, creating stories for scaling solutions. Feel free to explore the updated website.
The world needs these stories for solutions now more than ever. This should be the last “CatchMercurial” blog post you’ll receive — but it likely won’t be the last you’ll hear from me. Although there is currently no blog on storiesforsolutions.com, I’ll likely create an email newsletter or new blog towards the end of 2020, and some of the stories I’ve shared to date may reappear in a different, updated format. And at this point, you’ll have the opportunity to opt in for updates or quietly ignore the request if this is no longer of interest 🙂
Once again, thank you for having accompanied me on this journey so far, and thanks for reading this at a time when we’re constantly being bombarded with information. It’s something I’ve wanted to write for a long time but it’s only been made possible by isolation.

Take care of yourselves and each other. And let’s talk soon.
