And thus I wonder, and similarly strive to create a balance - for me, for you, for us. For all of us.
While still a work in progress, I am eager for this page to be an ever-growing springboard to hope, highlighting articles, organizations, businesses, and even individuals, whose work on climate change and human consciousness can offer us hope for our future and for those of generations to come. Should you have input or ideas, I'd love to hear them - do share, and check back often to see what's new on the hope horizon! May this little webpage serve to connect you to the amazing growth and progress that is being made in our world, and inspire and motivate you in those moments when nothing else might.
