Today I accepted my nomination as the Secretary of Change in President Obama's cabinet, a position which he had not opened up even though he ran on a platform of change. As a representative of the Ministry of Change I appointed, anointed, and nominated myself this morning and accepted on behalf of everyone.

That's what the Secretary of Change does --act! It's everyone's job.

My second action today was to take a walk and look for evidence of change. As its spring, and after a hard rain fell for an entire day it wasn't difficult to find.

We have a centrist population, which is likely good to come back to the center, but we need to supply that little extra view to the future, and a willingness to change. To seek change we must become uncomfortable with our old unsustainable ways -- we've misabused ourselves, other people and species in this world, and mistreated the only planet we know harbors life -ours.

That evidence in photos will appear shortly on the Wonderlane Flickr photo stream http://www.flickr.com/photos/wonderlane/ under a Creative Commons License.

We can change, we can't even stop if we wanted to. I've always loved that old saying, "Baby you're the greatest, don't ever change!" cause it's so funny!

Indeed Lina, as Bob Dillan used to sing: "for the times are achanging..." and those who think themselves at the enlightened ones at the edge of modernity and technology may soon find out that they are behind the curve.
