We are so fully captured by the “now” that we lose sight of the "once was" http://bit.ly/11g1E61 http://3bl.me/msqwdy

I could have been a goat herder.
 
No, seriously.  Have you ever herded goats?  I have.  For about 15 minutes.  And I enjoyed every single bit of it. I’d have stayed there all day, just herding goats, if I could have.
 
I was down visiting Will Harris and his White Oak Pastures in Bluffton, Georgia.  Will reminds me of my grandfather. Ray once made the courageous decision to look himself in the mirror and say that the way he was building his company, his family’s financial security, and his legacy was wrong.  Ray decided that Interface, his company, could only be responsible if it sought to be as sustainable as possible.  Will Harris did the same thing with his family farm.
