Big Bouncing Global Messenger

I just wanted to thank the very kind individual with the globe this weekend.  1pm at Westlake Park in Seattle and the square was pretty bare.  All except for the courageous and extraordinary effort of Sam; as she favored being called.  Sam brought with her a large bouncing globe to demonstrate the "in each of our hands" feature of the planet's future!  It was all there; bouncing, rolling, spinning, flying and cajoling.  Cajoling me into the thinking and acting on issues related to reaching…See More

Plants are not in the actual…See More
