From the Ted Talk I posted the other day, I saw how the words typed here "add up," are tracked, so if we type about love and connection and sharing and stopping to look at a tiny flower growing out of the cracks, well, then, that is what we are talking about and thinking about and that change, that change is happening Now and Now and Now.  

Post of the beauty of your child, dog, cat, parent, friend.   What we share here does matter.  It is not just words tossed into air.
