A New Day

I was oh-so inspired this morning by my Oriental Medicine Research class's instructor, Bob Quinn, with his revelations on the life of Richard Buckminster Fuller. A quote to inspire the masses, as I was warmed and uplifted to hear: at the site of BF's almost-suicide, he took a moment to contemplate and shifted gears deciding to embark on "an experiment, to find what a single individual [could] contribute to changing the world and benefiting all humanity".

Not that I've been quite to that precipice, but seriously. What a beautiful gift to the world so many have made by choosing a path dedicated to the idea lying behind that quote.

I am so thankful to those I am and am not aware of pledging to that path.
