Seedlings

Each month we will publish a letter which we call a seedling. A seedling, by definition, is a young plant that has all that it needs to blossom: root, shoot and leaves. It just needs to break through the surface to reach the light. I am hopeful that with your work, care, wisdom, and inspiration the seedling will break through any resistance, reach the light of day and spread like wildflowers.

The letter will include an idea, a theory, a thought to pique your curiosity, to inspire you to delve deeper, to think in new ways, maybe even to imagine a new way of living. As I was exploring various fields I felt myself waking up, paying attention, and being more mindful. It was a though the light had shifted and what was in shadow was clear as day.

The letters may also include a poem, a Bible verse, or other reading. I am hopeful there will be words to inspire, enlighten, and renew and that you will share your insight that you may become a leader and a teacher in a quest to save our planet from ourselves, and for all of its inhabitants.

But we cannot forget action, for action can speak louder than words. Each letter will include a practical action we can take, some larger than others. And those actions can becomes habits, and they can teach others, inspire others to do likewise. And maybe most importantly, they can teach our children and grandchildren mindful and hope-filled ways of living on this beautiful planet for generations and generations to come.

Let Your Life Speak

Dear Partners in Green, There was a phrase that kept coming to mind as I thought about creating a site dedicated to the most important issue of our day. It then became apparent to me that if we could live into this phrase, all the other issues of our time would not be...
