Growing up we had stacks upon stacks of National Geographic. In addition to it showing me the many countries and cultures this world has to offer, it seemed to capture all that was beautiful on planet earth. It inspired my passion for photography and cultivated a life long zest to see all parts of this amazing world.
A friend knew this about me and recently sent me a TEDx talk by Dewitt Jones of National Geographic fame (which you can view via a link on his instagram feed). I highly recommend it. His talk resonated so much with me. From it being a sacrilege if you were to toss out a NG magazine (something I still struggle with today) to the fact that NGs primary goal is to CELEBRATE what is RIGHT with the world.
DeWitts short talk has so many powerful pearls of wisdom:
So moving forward, let’s celebrate the best that humanity has to offer and honor the time we have on this incredible planet 🌎
