i believe

in the powerful gesture of carrying a reusable mug

in the new story

a better story

in riding bicycles

and not owning what we don’t need

local book stores

paper books

telling our children the truth, always, even when it’s difficult

unseen acts of integrity

light rail

dark skies

eating slowly while sitting down

sitting down

standing up

our innate capacity to live in tune with nature

magic

spirits

the future.
