This Saturday I marched in a very wet March for Science in DC.

On Sunday, the story sign version 3.0 made its debut at the Smithsonian Earth Optimism‘s Teen Only event.

It was an honor to be in a room with some awesome conservation leaders and scientists.

I recorded stories from eight teens, covering everything from mass extinctions to permafrost melting, ocean acidification to water quality issues.

O is for Optimism

The kids are alright.

Happy Earth Day, world.

Earth Day Guest Post on Carolyn Studer’s Blog: 1000 Voices Speak for Compassion

“Defeatism is a product of linear thinking and I am not a linear thinker. I meander. I am a river and I am alive and that, at least, is cause for celebration.”

“I believe that listening is the best gift I have to give to this world.” — yours truly.

Happy belated Earth Day! I loved answering questions for Carolyn Studer’s blog. There’s a poem, three audio stories (!), a shout out to Centauri Summer Arts Camp, the People’s Climate March, Cilla McQueen, and spare thoughts on optimism mix, too.

Here’s the interview: http://www.carolynstuder.com/earth-day-with-poet-devi-lockwood-1000-voices-speak-for-compassion/

Enjoy.
