I’m listening to a clean energy panel with a focus on local implementation: how clean energy can affect local communities.
One of my heroes, Majora Carter from Sustainable South Bronx, is speaking, as are Aimee Christensen who councils Google on sustainabiltity, and Dan Carol, Issues and Content Director for Obama.
A year ago, I was asked by a friend from a virtual community to which I then belonged if I could answer ten questions that he had posted on his website, the URL of which I now forget.
At the outset, I made it very clear that I did not possess answers to everything and could only comment on the basis of my limited experience and understanding of the questions posed by my dear friend.
The first question posed was a rather cheeky one.
Within and without,
inside and outside.
Within The body and out,
two worlds abide.
The world inside,
both wondrous and rapturous.
The world outside,

At last, I am giving vent to an urge that has been deep inside me for quite sometime now and at the outset, I would like to seek the blessings of my Lord, Guide and Mentor who as my Guru, has been guiding me all these years and has been motivating me and compelling me to express myself through these writings.
I would have whistled if I could. Instead I cheered during Hillary’s speech at the Pepsi Center tonight in Denver. I first noted Hilary’s graciousness, followed by her humor and faculty to galvanize the crowd. I feel more graciousness would have served her well during her primary run, but is that a biased thought? Would I have expected ‘graciousness’ from Obama. It’s a female oriented word in our society.
I’ve been around a lot of strong, successful women during my two days in Denver. As a slightly type-A woman myself, I’m trying to find my own footing on the continuum of agressiveness and graciousness as they relate to career success and public acceptance.

6 PM in Denver and my day is just half over. I arrived this morning for
the Democratic National Convention and I practically feel like a

airport than the day before. I’m rooming in the unfinished basement of
a bed and breakfast about three miles from the convention’s epicenter.
