Like I said, Wow! Wow! Wow! I am so excited. I love that the contest is so open and fair and that there's really awesome prizes!! $10,000 Wow! and a trip to Ecuador!
I've always wanted to go to Ecuador. Well I better get on it. I have some awesome ideas and so does my little girl. So we'll definitely be entering. I hope you will too! I can't wait to see everyone's brilliant and inspiring ideas.
It's so fabulous. For the first time since about 1990, I actually feel like there may be a wonderful future for us. It will be difficult and full of challenges, but people are starting to turn around, things are changing and the solutions are here, we just have to apply them.
Even Vancouver has a green plan, http://talkgreenvancouver.ca and so there's hope.
Hope for my little girl, that she may grow up in a better world, ...hope that she will grow up and grow old, and hope that I may actually get to be a grandma one day. That's inspiring!
Okay so go on now, get thinking and filming!!
