On Death:

“I heard a nice little story the other day,” Morrie says. He closes his eyes for a moment and I wait.

“Okay. The story is about a little wave, bobbing along in the ocean, having a grand old time. He’s enjoying the wind and the fresh air — until he notices the other waves in front of him, crashing against the shore.

“‘My God, this is terrible,’ the wave says. ‘Look what’s going to happen to me!’

“Then along comes another wave. It sees the first wave, looking grim, and it says to him, ‘Why do you look so sad?’

“The first wave says, ‘You don’t understand! We’re all going to crash! All of us waves are going to be nothing! Isn’t it terrible?’

“The second wave says, ‘No, you don’t understand. You’re not a wave, you’re part of the ocean.’”

10 Year Anniversary
(Added on 8 March 2012)

Today is FairShare's 10 year anniversary!

It all started on 8 March 2002 – see the first (bottom) item on the What's Old page (and the accompanying photo montage).

After the celebrations, we'll wind up the organisation as a formal entity.

How to Celebrate:

  1. If you were there, re-inspire yourself by reading about the launch 10 years ago.
  2. Pick one of these numbers (perhaps at random): .
  3. Increase your involvement in that particular focus area, even if only by a fraction.


Lenten Carbon Fast
(Added on 8 March 2012)

Now here's a great idea for Christians (or non-Christians!) who want to work on the first 10:
the Lenten Carbon Fast [3 page PDF]. It invites you to sacrifice some of your carbon usage for Lent!



Bryan’s blog has moved to www. My Fair Share .org.


There are no events scheduled apart from the 10 year celebration, but if you live in Sydney, see the separate page for Sydney Meetups.
