Read This

I'm not a happy face kind of person. I believe that sometimes when you get handed lemons, you just can't make lemonade.

But I ran into this little nugget at a conference last week in a workshop on "green" communities and thought it was worth sharing. It's by Alex Steffen, author of "Worldchanging" and editor of worldchanging.com. I'm sure you'll agree that it applies to us as both individuals and as citizens of the world.

The bravest and most important thing any of us can do is to actively imagine a much better future...to imagine it as a reality, to try to see it whole, to lovingly dwell on its details and to see ourselves walking through it one day.
