Dare to Inspire

Community.  A community lost good friends snowboarding this weekend.  I am reminded of Kevin, Phil and Devlin who we lost a few years ago to that same mountain.  Life is a precarious state yet most of the people who have ever lived, are alive today.  This is because of exponential growth:

World population:
1412 - 425 million
1512 - 460 million
1612 - 545 million
1712 - 610 million
1812 - 1 billion
1912 - 1.65 billion
2012 - *7 billion*

Since more people are alive today than in any other time, imagine how many gifted folks long to contribute positively to our art, culture and evolution.  Look around.  Forget the medium (artifact, internet, party, craft fair, art show) just look.  See what the most people who have ever lived in the history of our species can accomplish.  Then tell me you don't feel inspired.  The world we want is possible simply because there are more folks to share the burden of work it's going to take to fix what's wrong.  Unemployed, make art.

Dare to inspire.
