Aah . . . that’s better!

I wish it was more widespread. Sometimes the news has depressing stories of what’s happening to the earth.

I haven’t been posting much during the Pandemic . . . perhaps I’ll attempt to ferret out The Good Stuff and share it!

2. Kellie - September 21, 2020

Yay, yes we need more of this please 👌❤️

nrhatch - September 21, 2020

I’ll see what I can do, Kellie! I would rather be an eternal optimist than succumb to perpetual pessimism. 😀

3. Jill Weatherholt - September 21, 2020

It’s sad the media chooses not to share the good in the world. Thank you for taking the lead, Nancy.

nrhatch - September 21, 2020

Some news anchors make it a point to end on a “high note” . . . they should ALL emulate that lead.

We all need a sense of hope for the future – now more than ever! Thanks for the reminder of the positive things that are happening, Nancy 🙂

If nothing else, at least we have orchids! 😀

Rainee - September 22, 2020

I like that 💐🌷🌺

5. Behind the Story - September 21, 2020

Thank you so much for posting this. I Googled #earthoptimism and got 12,700 hits. The Smithsonian Earth Optimism Facebook page has some excellent stories posted. Two of the articles I like are: “Navajo Women Are Bringing Sustainable Solar Power to the Navajo Nation” https://www.globalcitizen.org/en/content/navajo-renewables-solar-energy/?fbclid=IwAR0x7nHO1p57q26JcddT4JLPVuqt_mV4WOVfL78yXvUuLv2o09fVpjoWmSw

And: “Google Says Its Carbon Footprint Is Now Zero.”

Thanks again.

Excellent! Thanks, Nicki. I used to post positive stories on a regular basis . . . but I’ve been a little lax lately. 😛

6. L. Marie - September 22, 2020

Love that you post positivity, Nancy!!!

nrhatch - September 22, 2020

Thanks, LM. I’ll try to keep sharing the good!

7. Ally Bean - September 23, 2020

I’ll look for the #earthoptimism hashtag on Twitter to see what I can see. I like good news to counterbalance all the rest of it.

nrhatch - September 23, 2020

Good news is good for my mood . . . especially in election years.

8. Erica/Erika - September 29, 2020

You are right, Nancy, Change can also be for the good. The oryx running gives me hope. A good feeling. Thank you for sharing the good!

nrhatch - September 29, 2020

Watching nature “bounce back” produces positive flow for me too, Erica. Definitely a good feeling.
