While reflecting on "What is Resilience?", What's Next for Earth's new call, I can't help but think of our forests, especially our groves of Giant Sequoias that have withstood centuries but now struggle with climate change and the increasingly persistent and dangerous droughts and forest fires. These giants are the lungs of our planet and part of a complex, intelligent ecosystem that has evolved over millennia. We are actively disrupting that system.

We must now stand strong, intelligent, and resilient like a forest of Sequoia, doing all we can to battle climate change because are all in this together, and no matter how strong and resilient we may be, we all have out breaking points!

When I think of Resilience, I think of a forest coming back to life after a fire, but oh, at what cost!

The pace and intensity of these fires now speak to a bleak, hot and dangerous future if we do not take global, systemic steps to avoid what must not become the inevitable.

I believe we need to look at the big picture. To see the interconnection of all things. Science helps us to see this but so does our heart, we will need both more than ever going forward. In this piece, I embroidered a topographical map over a vintage photograph of El Capitan from 1965. I think it speaks to the beauty of understanding our environment and our relationship to it from multiple perspectives.

The forests are the lungs of our planet. Now the forests are in our lungs.
