Happy New Era!


Despite times of great global, economic and environmental uncertainty, I have never been more proud of...and hopeful for...our country!

Wherever you were on Inauguration Day, I hope you felt, and continue to feel, the CONNECTIVITY...the inclusivity, pulse and power of being part of a new chapter in history, and of the changes in and for each of us that started taking place immediately.

Barack Obama is now our 44th President
-- one amazing man who also evokes the spirit and accomplishments of Abraham Lincoln, our 16th President; Martin Luther King, whose birthday was commemorated just prior to Inauguration Day, and of each and every one of us, who are invited to be part of the New Administration.

A few ways to get and stay inspired and involved follow....with more to be posted at The Renewables: Thinkable is Doable regularly.

The Presidential Inaugural Committee wants to see where were you on January 20 at Noon?. Millions braved record cold to be on the Mall in Washington, D.C. for Barack Obama's Swearing In Ceremony and Inaugural Address. Billions watched images of the festivities streaming across screens...here in NYC (as in the above photo taken by Rick Schwab at City Hall), across the country, around the world. All were/are encouraged to send snapshots to the Official Inaugural Book, which now boasts close to seven billion images.

The New Administration wants to hear about changes that you'd like to see, and encourages you to be part of them.

The Green Inaugural Ball invites you to paricipate in the Green Economy.

An amazing confluence of caring and contribution finds the likes of John O'Donohue's Blessing for a Leader, Hannah Reimann's I Have a Dream and Amy Dixon-Kolar's Rosa Sat so Martin Could Walk so Barack Could Run weaving their way across the net and into our consciousness.

I'm finding myself returning again and again to the First Couple's First Dance and photos of the First Family...and turning daily to The While House for addresses, blogs, updates and what feels to me like real hope, right action and an invitation to be involved.

What a wonderful time, place and spirit to share!

And as always, I'd love to see and hear how you are!

Warmly and looking forward,

I, like many of you, was moved to hope, action and tears by the authenticity and inclusivity of the Obama campaign, and now, by Barack Obama and Joe Biden's victory, inauguration and administration...and by what it means for us as individuals, community, country, world.

As one whose Renewables tag line and experience is Thinkable is Doable, I of course resound with what Barack Obama has thought, written, spoken and now made into REALITY:

The Audacity of Hope.

Change We Can Believe In.

New Energy for America.

And I'm most struck by these words:

"I'M ASKING YOU TO BELIEVE...Not just in my ability to bring about real change in Washington....I'm asking you to believe in yours."

I hope you are as excited as I am. I plan to use my energy, efforts and posts to keep us informed and involved.

It's indeed an auspicious time to, as per Gandhi, "Be the change we want to see in the world."

I'm looking forward to it, gratefully.
