Embrace the Day (ok, can't think of anything too clever or what quote to use!)
What Gives Me Hope
my nieces and nephews
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by
reduce pollution and waste to help reduce global warming, make sure towns are affordable for everyone working in them, develop sustainable programs, clean up environment, anything I possibly could to make cool places available and livable for EVERYONE, no matter your socioeconomic status, race, etc.
What/who changed my life and why
Alaska because besides overwhelming me with its incredible beauty and wildness, it made me a stronger and braver person with more confidence...who knew living in a tent for months on end, walking through woods surrounded by bears munching blueberries, or excavating 10 hours a day in freezing temperatures could do so much!
Thank you Kristen for wishing me happy birthday. I recently made 16-day long business trip to Moscow and St. Petersburg, Russia. On my way back from there, I visited Sardinia, Italy where my great Italian Care2 friend, Sabrina & Fabio couple lives at. During my stay at their place, they showed me around to an old castle town, Sassari. This picture of me was taken with a newly-wed couple who also visited there.
