One Week To Go…To Brazil!

Well, I’m in the midst of making arrangements with people involved in Brazilian rainforest preservation work now, hoping to find our ideal partners as recipients of funds the company will generate.

Just got off the phone with Ian Scanlan who was referred to me by Palo Hawken of Bossa Nova Juices, who was referred to me by Paul Hawken, author of Blessed Unrest. (I love the way relationships can grow out of simple connections…)

Ian’s making arrangements for me to visit a reserve called Hileia Center, approximately 50 miles north of Manaus – which is just south of the Equator. It will be a humid 100 degrees in the cool of January …OMG.

This trip is starting to become very tangible all of a sudden, and I’m at a loss for words to describe the feelings of passion, providence, serendipity, patience and determination that it’s taken to arrive at this moment.

The Lower Rio Branco-Jauaperi Extractive Reserve is another place I’ve been invited to visit – another 36 hrs toward the equator. Right smack on it, I reckon.

I’m amazed at what this process is teaching me, already!
