I had another great interview on WPR’s Larry Meiller program. We talked a little about my trip around the world on a bicycle, and a lot about working with Poplar Creek Elementary school to illustrate the new book Falling Uphill: The Secret of Life.

Part I

This is my favorite interview about my trip around the world on a bicycle.

Part II

Listen to an interview about my trip and how that led to inspiring children and the make-a-book project. Please note: teacher Kate Krzysik’s interview is at the beginning of the show, and Associate Principal Larry Lueck’s interview is minute 20:52.

Thanks to WPR for helping to sow the seeds of the school book project at many more schools.

Please share:

Sustainable Futures

I recently did an in-depth interview in Vancouver for Sustainable Futures with Ryan Fletcher. This two part episode features stories of my travels framed in the context of creating a sustainable future and the rise of a global consciousness.

The fruits of inspiration

I’ve never wanted to measure my life by money, which lately has been an overly idealistic philosophy; nonetheless, I believe in measuring my life by new experiences and new opportunities.
