April, 2009: A new era is born

It’s springtime in America, again for the first time since 1980.

Greed is out. Frugality is in. Old paradigms are out. Shuttered buildings reopen with new ideas in the windows.

The economic crisis and changing of the presidential guard were seismic shifts in consciousness.

The recent photo of Obama chumming it up with his Russian counterpart says it all, newness of ideology permeates the air.

In crisis lies opportunity, but it can also lead to more crisis. Where this new era will take us is anyone’s guess, and tomorrow’s historical fact.

But there’s no doubt, we’ve begun a new era. Choose wisely what you do now, it could reverberate for years to come.
