Natural Balance

On Wednesday morning I happened to stumble across a Native American speaker at the hotel. T. Even though it was early in the morning the temperature was blazing, but just watching his intriguing ceremony and his amazing integration of sustainability and culture kept me occupied. And with a lot of water, I was able to stay outside and continue an interview with him about the Native American perception of sustainability and Mother Earth. The smell of burning sage also was very soothing. He went into detail about how we were connected to Mother Earth, and how we needed to protect her. He talked a lot about balance, we don't have to rip apart our cities, we just have to balance the natural world and our build world.
