“The earth is what we all have in common.”
— Wendell Berry
Ever hear the one about the dreamer who wouldn’t take a chance? Yeah, me neither! Every story that ever got retold had two essential qualities. First, it opened a new door into the world and, second, someone shared it. Of these qualities, the latter, sharing, is unquestionably paramount. Like an acorn unplanted, what good is genius without the appropriate ecosystem within which it can grow? You need to share your story with people who will share it in turn. To this end, plant your ideas well, under fertile conditions. Your vision might just change the landscape of tomorrow.
“The world is so empty if one thinks only of mountains, rivers and cities; but to know someone who thinks and feels with us, and who, though distant, is close to us in spirit, this makes the earth for us an inhabited garden.”— Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
