Every week we have a staff meeting to touch base on any pressing issues about the company: new procedures, production updates, upcoming events, etc. But every other week one of us get's to show a TED Talk to the rest of the group. Usually it's something inspiring and thought provoking. I look forward to this every other week so I thought I might as well share them with all of you! I found this talk, given by George Monbiot, about "Rewilding," while listening to the NPR TED Radio Hour--if you like Podcasts please subscribe to this one, it's life changing!!
The reason I wanted to share this talk with you all is because of it's semi-hidden-semi-obvious message that everything is connected. We must always be conscious that the decisions we make, large or small, can result in a domino effect. Something as small as complimenting a co-worker to make their day a little better, or as serious as not letting your friends drive under the influence (haven't we all heard that speech?). Know that as tiny as we are compared to this ever-expanding universe, we are all connected in some way.   Connectedlove, Barrie ***Song of the moment: Life on Mars? by David Bowie***

I think you are right in the sense that little things or big thing we do kind of have this"domino" effect. I find this very blog and small business to be very inspiring. In turn, this little/big thing has an effect on me and I bet countless others. It affects how we feel about people who care about their craft and why we chose to support them. I also feel that it is somewhat a reminder to us all that, before we had these fancy machines that mass produced things, people aquired the skills to create them. There will always be mass produced goods but it is refreshing and inpiring to know that you are not the only one who cares about handmade and quality.
