Rainy Days


















A triplet of good things to engage with while sheltering from the rain (that is, if you're not busy evacuating, sandbagging or cleaning up):
1. A book, Mountains beyond Mountains (Tracey Kidder, 2001), the captivating biography of Dr. Paul Farmer and how a personal commitment to care for individuals equally can change entire communities and even challenge global solution-deadlocks.
2. A site, www.breathingearth.net/, a fascinating online flash that 'measures' globally and nationally the births, deaths and carbon emissions of our existence on planet earth.
3. A film, bella, a magical movie that explores honestly how interruptable, malleable, open and redeemable is our future.
