Need a little help from my friends.
I'm struggling with my new Instagram Drawdown account. I need some photos to represent different solutions from the book. Some of them are so out of my league. Calling on my Insta friends to be creative and show me what you've got. All I can offer in return is a post on that very small account and/or a spot for the photo in some of our live presentations. Tag @drawdown2050headwaters or DM there if interested. Looking for creative photos that represent Refrigeration, Cement, Water Saving, and Recycling this week. Let's move people into action! #environment #climateaction #photography #helpeachother #callforphotos #landscapephotography #fallphotography #fallleaves #fallcolours #autumnleaves #instaautumn #countryside #field #falltrees #farm

Wagon Train!
This is the gorgeous #hockleyvalley. One of the most beautiful areas of Ontario especially in the fall. Also one of the reasons I moved nearby. The four old hay wagons were a pleasant surprise. #fall #autumn #autumnleaves #fallleaves🍁🍂 #fallleaves #fallcolours #countryside #countrylife #ontariocanada #fallinontario #naturesbeauty #naturephotography #landscapephotography #dufferin

On the Grapevine.
So...I finally grabbed the camera again. Delivering books does have its advantages. A little something just down the road from my house. I hope you all enjoy. #fall #autumn #fence #fencepost #field #clouds #grapes #grapevine #instagood10k #nature #outdoors #snaphappy #canadafall #autumn🍁 #instaautumn

So it begins!
Five hundred books arrived in time to be very grateful this #thanksgiving weekend in Canada. Thanks to the incredible generosity of @harmonywholefoodsmarket they will be hand delivered FREE of charge to launch Drawdown in our community. Huge thanks to #bookloreorangeville for supporting us with a discounted order.
This is what I've been up to my friends! Talking to anyone who will listen and a few people did. A year ago, I'd never heard of this book or project. I answered a calling so out of my comfort zone and started talking to people about climate change and solutions. People are listening! We all want to find solutions and help solve the greatest challenge humanity and our planet is facing. They are out there. Not a magic bullet, but all of us doing many different things. Never underestimate the power of one person. That's how change happens. One person at a time. Talk about it. Reach out to others. Take action yourself. I have a link in my bio on an inspired video by Paul Hawken. Our community journey is being updated on twitter under Headwaters2050 and just getting going here at @drawdown2050headwater

Climate Cat!
Sadie loves this book. Yes, I read to her, and yes, the floor is hard so...towel. This is my reason for being right now. Drawdown outlines 100 scientifically researched #climatesolutions. It's #riseforclimate day so bring the momentum home and find out how to take action. I have started a new account to focus on all the fantastic things going on in my community and around the world. Check out @drawdownheadwaters Big news for our local group coming soon. So excited and so busy. #climatechange #climateaction #climate #savetheplanet #takeaction #communityfirst #actlocally #makeadifference #onepersonatatime #togetherwecan #caturday #rescuecat #coolcat #goodread #instacat #instaread

The Next Generation of Eco-Warriors!

Inspiring afternoon of education thanks to the @earthrangers at #heartlakeconservation. Reducing food waste is ranked 3rd in solutions to #climate change. One third of food is wasted, primarily in developed countries, while 800 million people go hungry. Eight percent of annual greenhouse gases are due to food waste. Looking for a simple way to help the planet. Waste less food. #foodwaste #climatesolutions #earthrangers #sustainability #ecocaledon #drawdown #ecowarriors #kidfriendly #kidpower #education #getoutdoors #familytime #environmentaleducation #foodwastewarriors

Sit...good girl!
The roll over command works best in a muddy area after a shampoo, rinse, condition, dry. Sigh. She is very happy at her new farm. Thanks @legacy_farms_ for everything you do for her and all of the animals in your care. #happysunday #chestnutmare #horsesofinstagram #happyhorse #horselove #maresofinstagram #sit #whoneedsadog #funnyhorse #kwpn #dutchwarmblood

Softly the Sun Rises.
Hope everyone is doing well. Writing taking priority these days. Another blog post up (link in my bio), "Fear, Faith and Feathers." Also waiting to hear back on a proposal for a Drawdown climate change solutions article. Exciting times. Wishing you all a wonderful weekend. #sunrise #sunrise🌅 #pinksky #skyporn #instagood10k #instasunrise #instasky #reflections #sunrise_sunsets_aroundworld #lake #earlymorning #naturesbeauty #getoutdoors #cleanwaterways #nature_good #landscapephotography #colorsofnature #happyweekend #happyfriday #islandlake

Sitting Pretty.
One of the Brady sisters who I met the other week. I'm pretty sure it's Marsha since she pushed past the others to get to the camera! New blog post up, "Chickens Save the World." Link is in my profile. Reminiscing about my childhood on the farm, meeting my friend's chickens, regenerative agriculture and an inspiring project in Minnesota!

Blowing in the Wind.
From yesterday morning. I found this little feather and tried to place it on a daisy. It didn't work. I then released it into the strong breeze. It took several tries, but nature's art is always the best in my opinion.

Monday Mood.
So worth getting up early for this spectacular sunrise. Thanks to @sherroseart for the motivation. Sunrise on the lake is where we started our photography adventures a year ago. Wishing you all the best in your new home.

Chillaxing.
It's hard work being personal assistant by day and guard cat at night. She fell asleep during her bath. We can all relate.
Happy Weekend Everyone.
