Hey Lucy,

Missed you in the audience last night.

But seriously, "inspirational" is the word I've been sharing with everyone today about last night's presentation and the award winners, each of who was quite extraordinary. I came away more hopeful for the future, knowing we are of one family, of mother.

You know, with all the recent talk about how subservient foundations are to their corporate funders and the status quo in general, there was a bit more rebelliousness in the night's presentation than I was expecting. Perhaps its just the nature of being an environmentalist, but the list of accomplishments the emcee read off at the beginning were all victories against major corporations.

Okay, so it is not like they gave an award to somebody fighting local homeboy Chervon on environmental justice issues -- that would have really surprised me -- but they did stick it to Shell last night with the award to Ireland's Willie Corduff. Peru's Jolio Cusurichi Palacios calls for action against World Bank types will certainly put him on the State Department's watch list, if he isn't already.

Rather hard to start a revolution from the upper balconies of the Opera House, but they don't call it the War Memorial building for nothing.

Peace,
Gayle
