      Hi Priscilla,

      After a few I.T headaches, I think I have it back up - let me know if there are any issues!

    Hi Ben,

    Thank you so much for your feedback. I also think the John Muir quote is rad, and it always manages to keep me grounded.

    My work is predominantly in the tertiary sector, and I live by the mantra of understanding to be understood. I find it particularly valuable when encountering people who are steadfast in their ways, or when there is money at stake (which there always seems to be). The beauty of Sustainability in practice is that you can achieve your goals from so many paths and perspectives. Understanding another's point of view just means you are better equipped to engage them in your agenda and use the path they have laid out to achieve a sustainable outcome.

    really loved this article. The John Muir quotation about being in the world vs. on it is the coolest, and I agree that the pursuit of understanding opens the path forward. Have you seen that strategy yield results in any particular areas?
