Picture 59 in my 100 Pictures Project: a hand-lettered quote of optimism

Greetings from early July, 2020! A significant part of Australia is back in lockdown, while other parts, mine included, are getting to stretch our wings a little again. Gotta keep up physical distancing and hand-washing though. (And then moisturising hands ‘cos sanitisers and everyone else’s soap doesn’t agree with my skin so much.)

I love this quote

This optimism-plus-effort quote is always relevant, and no more than now…

Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful caring citizens can change the world. Indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.
~ Margaret Mead

Looking at our issues with that bit of perspective gives me hope. We don’t all have to do a lot, but a few banded together can make a real difference. This quote is big and clear on my Bold Art for Bold Causes page too … seems salient with our ongoing humanitarian contributions.

Did you hear this podcast with Eytan Lenko? His big plans could solve lots of big problems at the same time. I also loved this conversation with Rutger Bregman. #sharinggoodstories Cheers for the super timely interviews, Osher Günsberg!

A LOT is going on and needs addressing. And, nobody benefits by us not sharing our creations, our beauty, our joy. Here’s what I’ve been making…
