Watching Paint Dry

For almost two years the cottage that has housed FearLess has faithfully kept us warm and dry and although I try not to get attached to inanimate objects the truth is that I feel some affection for the old place. I've been looking for a new home for the odd projects I get myself into and so I would often worry about what would happen next with the cottage. I don't own it, a lovely local man does, so this attitude that it's my responsibility to make sure something wonderful continues to happen in the cottage is misplaced. But the place has gotten under my skin and for now I'm a caretaker of sorts. 

FearLess isn't really a place. But we call this place the FearLess Cottage. What's evolved here has been important to me. And some of the most important moments have been time working to further the mission of Al Gore's Alliance. The rebranding of the cause The Climate Reality Project, and the creation of events like 24 Hours of Reality have meant a lot personally and arguably for the cause. The link between extreme weather and climate change was thrust into the consciousness of the press and the public first during 24 Hours of Reality. 

So when there was a chance for The Climate Reality Project to find a new Boulder Co. home it seemed to be a more than worthy occupant for the next chapter of The Cottage. It makes me very happy. 

As an office warming gift for The Climate Reality Project I asked my friend Kevin, who had painted the sign on the door when we moved in, to scrape off THE FEARLESS COTTAGE and paint on the new logo. My other friend Jeffery Garland made this time lapse film of the transformation. I've watched it over and over. It's a study in the passage of time in more ways than one and it's perhaps my favorite souvenir of the past two, beautiful years. 

I hope you enjoy it too.

The evolution of the FearLess Cottage is aligning with the energy that our world is facing to survive; that of overcoming the polarity of opposites and the suffering that comes with it. It is in the middle ground, the space in-between, that reveals opposing sides have only the meaning we give them.

Al Gore knows more than he is sharing and he seems to take the opposing hits graciously. More will consciously evolve into an expanded awareness that The FearLess Cottage is poised to embody.

With appreciation, gratitude and many...
