Happy (Holiday) Weekend



These circular snippets of our lovely and fragile planet captured by Marco Suarez remind me the Native American Proverb, "We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors, we borrow it from our children."

Today is Earth Day, Good Friday, and the beginning of Easter weekend. As we increase our efforts in sustainability and striking a healthy balance with our environment, I am reminded that the worst thing we can do as individuals is nothing. Apathy not only cripples our individual spirits but will harm generations to come (including our children and our children's children). I was reminded yesterday, through a conversation with colleagues, that we are undoubtedly connected and dependent on one another and that we must work together to be good stewards of our planet. It's a big job, isn't it? Every.Single.Person.Matters.Don't ever let anyone tell you otherwise.

I hope you have a restful weekend filled with lots of love and joy. xo
