But before you click on the link, here’s a few from Sir Optimism himself:

~ Richard Branson

~ Richard Branson

“Personally, I see any glass half full as an opportunity to top it up, start a conversation and perhaps spark a great new idea.”
~ Richard Branson

“Through the right people focusing on the right things, we can, in time, get on top of a lot, if not most of, the problems of this world. And that’s what a number of us are trying to do.”
~Richard Branson

Brilliant!

I recently watched the documentary, Mile… Mile & a Half – A Journey Along the John Muir Trail. It tracks the journey of five friends who embark on a 211 mile hike from Yosemite to Mt. Whitney in California. But these aren’t just any average friends. Each is an artist; two are cinematographers, one is a still photographer, one is a location sound recordist, and one is a camera man.

The documentary combines their skills to capture the beauty and sounds of this spectacular wilderness. But believe me, it’s not a typical nature film. It’s also a film about friends – their spirit, their perseverance but mostly their humour and camaraderie. And it’s about the people they meet and ‘collect’ along the way.

Well worth watching. I hope you make the time to enjoy it. (Psst…it’s available on iTunes & Netflix).

“In every walk with nature one receives far more than he seeks.” ~John Muir

My old career was lovely and interesting, 
but I was in it because 

I was being more loyal to my fears
than to my dreams.

Quotes That Make You Go Hmmm…

“Live Simply
So That Others
May Simply Live”

I love this quote for a number of reasons.

I first saw it the other day when I was driving around town, spray painted in black on a white background – striking, simple and poignant.

The object that had been painted white?  A street-side concrete garbage container.

The garbage container was located outside a high school.

Youth activism in today’s text message world.   Perfect.

Who is the author of this quote?

A quick Google search attributed it to both Mother Teresa and Gandhi.

I didn’t feel the need to search further, to suss-out just who was the definitive author. Either is fine by me.

Striking, simple, poignant.

What was your reaction when you first read this quote?
