Making handouts for the Indian folk tale that we're going to make puppets for tomorrow at WFN - Should be fun <3
It's something to believe in - and it seems to be working <3
It almost seems like when we know too much or get too much or decide 'OK - I have to get involved in politics because it's the only way to make a difference' is exactly when things fall apart. What's inspiring about this is it's simplicity.
In January, Lucinda Armas was nice enough to come out to present at our quarterly forum for business and the arts. Armas has only been at the arboretum for four years, but she represents an organization that has been around for almost a century and abides by the rules, both new and old, this nonprofit has created and is constantly evolving. Like an old Oak, one might say. Using that metaphor, one might infer there is a wisdom and steadiness, an integrity and strength that manifests itself through time. This organization, like an old Oak, has weathered storms, lived through seasons, sprouted continuous green leaves and produced acorns, seeds, for generations to come. This will to live and strive and do good is ever apparent. My question was, what can we learn from this organization that has gone from, what my kids call, 'the tree museum' to major attraction? Did they 'sell out'? Are they being responsible now that a faster, new and younger audience is loudly making it's way through the trees, candy wrappers in hand?
The answer is, we can learn a lot. They are as old school as ever - strong and steady - yet flexible and flowing, leaves dancing in the winds.
