This weekend I was out running an errand with my kids and I met an ostrich.
I was rockin’ one of my organic cotton tees. The shirt is green and says “My favorite color is green” with a swirly vine design around the words. A woman walked up to me and (I suppose she was just trying to be friendly) said “…and MY favorite color is blue!” (oh brother!)
In today’s world, it shouldn’t take that long to “get it.” I really wonder how many people are still living with their heads in the sand when it comes to recognizing the critical state of our world in terms of the earth, global warming and the well-being of our environment.
I guess it always surprises me when I get comments like this because it’s so much in the forefront of my mind, I can’t imagine how it can be so far from others’. And then I wonder what else I could be doing…what else I SHOULD be doing.
I suppose “doing, leading and teaching” is my contribution. I am “doing” the right things in my daily life (learning along the way, and hopefully getting better all the time!). I am “leading” others in the right direction by helping to put practices into place (in my kids’ schools, for starters). And I am hopefully “teaching” others through this blog.
I truly appreciate your comments, your “kudos”, your “thank yous” and your time to share this journey with me. It’s been three months now and I believe it’s been well spent!
Let’s all keep fighting the good fight! Green is a beautiful color but it’s an even more beautiful CAUSE!
