Speaking at the @rainforestalliance Gala last night! "Our second child was born 9 weeks ago so Damani and I have spent the last two months basically just changing diapers, feeding, smiling, kissing, and snuggling. And every night time wake up, every wipe, every bounce has been a reminder that sustaining life is profound and wonderful. This might be obvious to the farmers and sustainability champions but in a society that often prefers the most innovative, the fastest growing, and the biggest profit I think it can be easy to forget that the simple actions that maintain life are just as fulfilling and necessary. Certainly for me, the reminder a baby offers us has been grounding and clarifying -- it is joy, not (just) sacrifice, that comes from sustaining life.
It is an honor to serve as a @rainforestalliance ambassador. I am more grateful than ever for the work they do to support life sustainers, and for having the foresight 31 years ago to build an alliance of everyone doing their utmost to maintain our planet for today and tomorrow."
