Lots on these last two weeks, apologies for the lack of postings from this (the UK) side of the pond. And it seems we’re not the only ones. Is it just me, or does anybody else get the impression that we are currently living through a somewhat unique period of history? With potential black Presidents, record oil prices, Iranian fears, Chinese Olympics, Zimbabwean disasters, the (once) richest man in the world quitting to run a charity… it seems like there’s rather a lot going on at present. Not to mention signs that our old favourite, the environmental crisis, is more dangerous than it’s ever been – have a look at these articles on sea ice melt, on tornadoes and this.
Could it be that we look back at 2008 as on of the formative years in World history?
Certainly from a personal perspective, I am sure 2008 will be remembered as a pivotal year for us. With Bright Green now at the beginning of its second year, things are really starting to come together in both offices. Although we’re sure the most difficult times still lay ahead, it’s exciting to be here at the present moment in time. My guess is that being present in the current moment is something that many entrepreneurs and politicians struggle with, and that if they could it would help considerably. Given our future looks increasingly uncertain, perhaps it is time to just be?
