Even small actions like posting regularly on this Blog can be powerful. I am reminded of a theory known as the - “the idea that a butterfly’s wings might create tiny changes in the atmosphere that may ultimately alter the path of a tornado or delay, accelerate or even prevent the occurrence of a tornado in a certain location. The flapping wing represents a small change in the initial condition of the system, which causes a chain of events leading to large-scale alterations of events. Had the butterfly not flapped its wings, the trajectory of the system might have been vastly different. While the butterfly does not cause the tornado, the flap of its wings is an essential part of the initial conditions resulting in a tornado.” Quoted from Wikipedia, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Butterfly_effect

My goal for the New Year is to focus on how I can personally be the change I want to see in this world.  My calling to make the world a better place involves humans and the environment we all share. Even though I live a very simple life in the country, the selective use of technology such as a computer and internet connection are fine by me if they are used for the highest good.  My intention is to use this Blog as a communication tool for educating the world about how life can be better in , .   I invite you to join me in making a healthy goal to achieve this year.  You can share your in the comments on this page and we can support each other as we move towards living healthier lives.  Borrowing the slogan of our new president, “Yes we can!”
