This was a big week and it ended with a harmonious treat. I got to go to Chicago to participate in a day-long pre-Greenbuild conference of our own making to review, learn from and evolve our latest thinking to come out of our collaboration with the Biomimicry Guild. To unwind, I sat down and watched Super Nanny and What Would You Do? and just when I had had enough ‘reality’…Nate (my thrisis-savior soulmate/husband) flips the channel and we were sucked into some beautiful imagery of the world with Prince Charles talking about living more sustainably, returning to organic farming, building cities to be more life-friendly.
It was all sounding wonderfully familiar and I started yelling at the TV (which i often do) about how we at HOK are on this and don’t they know about Biomimicry?!? When noneother than Janine Benyus, co-founder of the Biomimicry Guild, herself starts talking. There she was in HD on the big screen…the rockstar of helping the world rediscover nature’s genius. We were just together in Chicago and here she was in Prince Charles’ movie of all things. Pretty cool! If you didn’t catch the premiere tonight on NBC, this is a beautiful, informational and very inspirational documentary…check it out. And for even more inspiration, check out all the ‘net positive’ ideas we gathered for our new poll while at Greenbuild.
