Won’t you tell me your name?


What story do we want to share? When you talk to your grandchildren, What story will you tell about your participation at the end of civilization as we know it? We can shape this story. We can make it amazing. Will the story of our time be a short cautionary tale, or an epic poem of philosophy and action?
Creation > consumption
Love > fear
It’s always what you make it
Make it awesome
