LivingPlanet, a venue for sharing my and your vivid memories, passionate concerns, and intriguing ideas on social, cultural, political, educational, economic, and environmental issues. Share your thoughts, your activities, what you plan to do with the rest of your life, and how you plan to change or make a difference in the world (if you want to!). In sharing (or debating!) ideas, thoughts, and experiences, we create a community of knowledge bearers and transmitters, which hopefully leads to personal and societal growth. I have been privileged to meet, talk to, make friends with some of the most intriguing and passionate people, and I look forward to others and learning what they think, do, and stand for on a variety of issues. This site is a tribute to them, those with a passion for life, growth, and social justice, and for the privilege of learning from them and from you!
