Today I realized April 3rd looms large. Do you realize it’s been almost a year? Amazing as it seems, this all started almost 365 days ago. Wowzer! So much has happened, but Re-do 365 truly has been transformative. I’ve stayed true to my promise to post everyday – with the notable exception of two days recently. A guesstimate of the number of words I’ll have written when done is approximately 250,000. Part of the initial plan was to push myself to write, to become a better writer, and I am becoming that – a better writer. Another part of the plan was to search for solutions to issues, some of which have travelled with me since childhood. Presently, I am happy to report the work has paid off. I am morphing into a better version of moi. What a learning it’s been. And while there’s been some dillying and lots of dallying, mostly there’s been lots of progress. Okay, I’ve not lost all the weight I’d hoped to which is a blah, but it is coming off slowly. I am lighter in many, many ways. But enough of me for tonight. I’d like to chat about something else right now.
I don’t have TV so didn’t watch the Oscars. It’s heart breaking, but don’t cry for me, I’ll get my fill of replays on You Tube. Anywho, this is about Leo’s win. After almost a lifetime in the business, Leonardo DiCaprio won an Oscar. Cool. Now, I easily admit he’s not my fav actor, but he is one of my fav environmentalists and his passion and eloquence last night brought me to tears. Bravo! If you’ve not see him accepting his award and speaking out for Mother Earth, check it out. I say well done, hot actor man, well done.
So he didn’t need to do this on his special night, but he did with clarity and direction, not missing a thought. Right, he’s an actor. He gets paid the big bucks to memorize speeches. Perhaps he did that last night. Doesn’t matter. The point is he spoke in defence of this planet’s plight and I applaud him. And, he made me aware that I can do more to assist Mother Earth.
So I am wishing tonight for increased awareness and a little action. Each of us can relieve the pressure global warming is putting on our beautiful home. It would be slightly unfair to ask you all to consider vegetarianism. You must know that factory farming is not only cruel, but a major contributor to ozone depletion. Cannot give up meat? What else, then? There are so many little things. Google it. http://www.50waystohelp.com/ Take a few minutes and source out ways to make a difference.
