I had the wonderful opportunity to travel with Alice Klein and others on a spiritual journey to Chiapas Mexico. Her movie looks amazing! If you have a chance to drop by the South by South West Film festival check it out! I cannot wait to see it!

Call of the Hummingbird is a visually engaging and thought-provoking documentary that picks up where An Inconvenient Truth leaves off. We know the planet’s heating up. This full-frontal eco-manifesto is about how we can use this critical time to actually make change that matters. A truly international tri-lingual film shot entirely outdoors in Brazil, it is set during a gathering of earth-lovers who wade into an on-the-edge political dialogue with nature. Welcome to Survivor for social change addicts. Through following the film’s fascinating characters, we are seduced into new ideas about nature, time and the ‘nature’ of time. The film takes us from the mystery of the Mayan calendar to Hurricane Katrina and ends with some answers to the dilemma we all face that are both simple and profound.

Every human is an artist. The dream of your life is to make beautiful art.
don Miguel Ruiz

Our life is composed greatly from dreams, from the unconscious, and they must be brought into connection with action. They must be woven together.
Anais Nin (1903 – 1977)

We grow great by dreams. All big men are dreamers. They see things in the soft haze of a spring day or in the red fire of a long winter’s evening. Some of us let these great dreams die, but others nourish and protect them; nurse them through bad days till they bring them to the sunshine and light which comes always to those who sincerely hope that their dreams will come true.
Woodrow Wilson (1856 – 1924)

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.
Mark Twain (1835 – 1910)

History has proven, God has never given anyone a dream Without also including the power to achieve that dream; It is up to us to claim the power and go after that dream, Or just claim , it was only a dream.
Larry Bennett

We are the music-makers, And we are the dreamers of dreams, Wandering by lone sea breakers, And sitting by desolate streams; World-losers and world-forsakers, On whom the pale moon gleams: Yet we are the movers and shakers Of the world forever, it seems.
Arthur William Edgar O’Shaughnessy (1844 – 1881)

I like the dreams of the future better than the history of the past.
Thomas Jefferson (1743 – 1826)

The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.
Eleanor Roosevelt (1884 – 1962)

Let your hook always be cast; in the pool where you least expect it, there will be a fish.
Ovid

This whole creation is essentially subjective, and the dream is the theater where the dreamer is at once: scene, actor, prompter, stage manager, author, audience, and critic.

Carl Jung (1875 – 1961)

Once Chuang Chou dreamt he was a butterfly, a butterfly flitting and fluttering around, happy with himself and doing as he pleased. He didn’t know he was Chuang Chou. Suddenly he woke up and there he was, solid and unmistakable Chuang Chou. But he didn’t know if he was Chuang Chou who had dreamt he was a butterfly, or a butterfly dreaming he was Chuang Chou.

Chang Tao-ling

We either make ourselves miserable or we make ourselves strong.  The amount of work is the same.
Don Juan Matus
