Q: What’s easier for you – imagining a happier world, or a darker one?
A: I’m not sure it’s easier, but I do my best to imagine a happier world, to focus my energies on how we can improve life on this planet rather than to give energy to the ways in which we might sink deeper into darkness. Imagination has power, and I believe in focusing that toward the goal of a brighter future, to inspire myself to act in ways that can contribute to that potential.
