October 31st, 2012, I’m jumping into the abyss. Starting a new blog. Attempting to capture new and better ideas that will be a muse to other thought leaders. There are so many people making a positive difference, but it seems like we rarely hear about them with all the cacophony of news that caters to violence. Violence won’t make our world – or our own souls – better. So that’s why I’m starting this blog, to create a haven for thought leaders, innovators, and others seeking an alternate source of better ideas.
Recently I was sharing with a neighbor about a non-toxic food grade roof idea I’d entered in a contest. She basically told me that my ideas are odd. She also posed that toxins are everywhere and there’s nothing we can do about it- that maybe I should stop wasting my time/energy working on clean roof projects.
That got me to thinking. She’s half right. I’ve got all these ideas to make the world a better place. But I don’t have an engineering degree. I don’t have deep pockets. But I am curious, and I’ve had successes in implementing some of my ideas. I have a diverse group of friends and family with differing talents and abilities (including my good friend above). It would be great to find a group of like-minds when it comes to better ideas and thought-leader thinking. So, I’m starting this blog to put my ‘odd’ ideas out there and see who bites:) Hopefully others with odd ideas will be encouraged to make the world better one little talent, one little kindness, one little idea at a time.
