I got an email this morning from Natalia, a young woman in Lake Baikal, Russia. Among other things, she said that The Radical Leap “is amazingly deep, in simple words and stories it says about big things. Thank’s for that.”
Man, I love it when I can actually hear a person’s accent in the written word. (And you’re welcome, Natalia!)
Even cooler, though, is the work that Natalia and her colleagues are doing through their “funky start-up” (her words), for which she is the associate director. Adoptree gives you the opportunity to plant a tree in any part of the world and then to watch it grow over a period of time.
According to this currency converter, mine will cost me about 12 bucks (chickenfeed!), as soon as I can figure out how to complete the transaction: it looks like they have a few bugs to work out on their shopping cart–either that, or I’m a complete moron. So, go on, you plant a tree, too, if you can figure out how.
—or at least check out their blog.
