Love all the Children

Tonight I heard a talk by Bill McDonough, noted architect and co-author of Cradle to Cradle: Remaking the Way We Make Things. My head is spinning (in a good way). His design philosophy and approach to environmental stewardship is so inspiring and creative, unlike most of the stuff that comes out of the mainstream environmental movement, which just makes me want to throw up my hands and give up. He talks about using human creativity via design in order to actually do good, not just do less bad. You have to read the book.

A found poem that comes from the main idea of his talk (and how convenient that it fits into haiku form!):

Love all the children
of all species for all time:
Cradle to Cradle
