First Post

Hi World,

I have decided to start up a new blog, picking up where I left off with my old blog, A Million Green Lights. The purpose of my new blog is to spread the news about meaningful work -- initiatives, research, discoveries, innovations, progress -- being led by individuals or organizations around the world to tackle the world's greatest challenges pertaining to environmental sustainability. Issues affecting human society, the natural world, the marine environment, the terrestrial environment, and the atmosphere. 

I will also share my own journals, commentary, photography, and videography. 

Why did I name this blog 'The Human Spirit'? I believe that human spirit is what we have in common, inside us, to make this world a better place. And as we move into the future, and as global challenges grow larger and more complex, it is our courage, optimism, and humanness which will matter most in solving the world's challenges. 

I hope that by reading this blog, you will be inspired to take a cause you believe in and take personal action to make it better!

I look forward to sharing with you, and having you visit often!
