This man is looking up at the sky hoping to shine a light on radical and creative ways to change the future for the better. Many would call that blue-sky thinking – finding ideas that aren’t constrained by reality, but they’re dismissed often because they’re harder to put into action.
His sky is green though. Skies are only green before thunderstorms (it’s got to do with the blue and red light particles)
But then perhaps he’s discovered green sky thinking? Extreme measures of activating friction and disruption in the ordinary way we do things so we can avoid a catastrophic turn of natural events. Like those Tesco shoppers who left all their grocery plastic in stores as a sign of consumer protest. Like Greta who boycotted school on Fridays to protest for climate change in front of parliament. I love stuff like that. And from now on this little man and I are calling that kind of left-field eco-activism green sky thinking.
Happy Friday you guys.
PS: Greensky Bluegrass also happen to have the perfect tunes for a Friday arvi!
