I am in awe when I come across the work of people with incredible, effective commitment to saving the Planet. From people like Paul Hawken of Natural Capital and WiserEarth, who focuses his brilliant mind and warm heart on constantly teaching, informing, connecting and advising - to people like Julia Butterfly Hill who spent two precious years of her youth sitting up high on a platform in an ancient California Redwood to prevent it from being logged.
People do extraordinary things with their lives for the benefit of Life. I feel really thankful about that.
Along with my awe and my gratitude, I also feel a sharp disappointment in myself that I haven't yet stepped up in such a way. It's an enormous personal challenge.
