Emotionally Stunning video ‘Canuck & I’ Explores the Bond Between A Crow and His Human

I found this video through one of the Facebook groups which I hold sacred ‘The More Beautiful World’.

‘Canuck & I’ Explores the Bond Between A Crow and His Human

Now I know why I chose to make another espresso and stay ‘home’ to watch this, prior to going out with my laptop to visit some places, print new cards, sit in a cafe to work on my book and new music.

It’s because I mentioned on Facebook when posting this that I already had tears in my eyes before knowing anything about it, and well, I had tears flowing down my face the entire 20 minutes.

My mother would easily tear up expressing emotion. I simply love animals so much. There is such a vast universe, well, in this case, planet filled with fish and mammals in the seas and animals and birds from tropical forests to deserts.

Humans can be so much more. Our lives can be enriched so, so much more by opening them moment to moment and valuing all of the creatures that we share this planet with, ALIVE.

Hopefully sharing this video will bring warmth, loving feelings, compassion and a desire to protect the habitats of the magnificent species with whom we share this planet.

Walk more, bicycle more, have less children, aim for education to share empowering stories more and buy and consume less. Living healthier and happier lives by living more simply and feeling gratitude and authentic joy from doing things that empower ourselves and one another, will reduce the dependence on needing more money, pharmaceutical companies, insurance and automobile manufacturers, psychiatrists, and help to alleviate addictions… 🙂

¡ Solution ! to What Will You Do ? | Citizen Muscle Boot Camp | Be a Climate Changemaker

For those of you who hadn’t caught President Barack Obama’s “State of the Union Address” last evening, he said:

“No challenge poses a greater threat to future generations than climate change; 2014 was the planet’s warmest on record, and 14 of the last 15 years since 2000, have been the warmest in history. If the best scientists around the world are telling us our human activities are changing the planet, posing immediate risks to our national (and world) security “we should act like it”. The world needs to reach an agreement to protect the one last planet we have.

A few months ago I wrote this blog What Will You Do? https://digesthis.wordpress.com/2014/11/11/what-will-you-do-the-greatest-story-of-our-generation-dosomething-timeforchange/ containing lots of information to ponder. The title’s intent was to en courage people to participate: we all need to adapt and actively work towards a sustainable and healthy environment.

Turns out there already is a program in place ¡ a solution ! to guide us to work together and dis cover what each of us can do, to invest towards making positive changes. Annie Leonard created the short animated film The Story of Stuff, which has gone from a movie to a movement.

Annie Leonard’s efforts as an environmental campaigner and communicator were recognized by Greenpeace, who hired her this last year as Greenpeace USA’s new Executive Director. It is she who is orchestrating the Citizen Muscle Boot Camp.

The Citizen Muscle Boot Camp link will take you on your own path – to participate in the change you want to see – and flex your muscles to work together towards a common purpose. It’s designed to guide each of us to finding what we can contribute. It’s flexible, so that you can do what you can, in the time that you can afford.

Week One is starting now, January 20th, 2015.

PURPOSE: Connecting to Your Passions and Skills

Changemakers are at their best, and most powerful, when they’re working from a personal sense of purpose. So, let’s get connected to your unique passions and skills!

Former White House Press Secretary Bill Moyers urges all of us as well, to Be a Climate Changemaker. Everyone brings different skill sets to the environmental movement: everyone needs to use their unique abilities to fight climate change, live more sustainably and protect the next generations from environmental toxins.

Moyer’s is perhaps best known for his book based on the 1988 PBS documentary, in which he interviewed Joseph Campbell and the Power of Myth. Here’s an overview of “The Power of Myth.

SmallBizConnect has a toolkit regarding making your Business Environmentally Sustainable, through making responsible decisions that will reduce your business’ negative impact on the environment.

En finale, an article to digest, submitted January 19th by DON MELNICK, MARY PEARL and JAMES WARFIELD in the Opinion section of the New York Times:“Make Forests Pay: A Carbon Offset Market for Trees”

And now, I have to get started myself to Connect my Passions and Skills
