Once upon a time, when women were birds,
there was the simple understanding that to sing at dawn
and to sing at dusk was to heal the world through joy.
The birds still remember what we have forgotten, that
the world is meant to be celebrated.”

I recently had the joy of meeting the women who are planting our trees, and even seeing some of the 50,000+ trees they planted in November after our TreeSisters: women seeding change Million Trees campaign.

Learn how to drive a stick shift.
Go so far away that you stop being afraid of not coming back. Say no when you don’t want to do something.
Say yes if your instincts are strong,
even if everyone around you disagrees.

“It’s time.”
