May we all use less water, buy less stuff (especially imported), eat
locally-grown food, recycle all that we don't need anymore, balance our work
with pleasures that inspire us to create more beauty, smile a lot, sing and

Do Something Now, recognize that you can make a difference in a very small way
and that there is a ripple effect to all that you do.
May we all learn to simplify our lives and find satisfaction in the little
pleasures which surround us on this amazing planet, and may we find the space in

We send you blessings for your health and joy to your world.
We have much to be grateful for… and that includes having you in our lives.
May 2009 be one of your happiest years and may you experience great peace!
