Diane Fleet

ON A PERSONAL NOTE:

I am a major Foodie. I love thoughtfully raised and grown food; I think people who can make cheese, wine and bread are true artists. I am beginning to have major crushes on Farmers. I love shopping locally. I love crying with my husband at sappy movies and sadly commercials can even bring us to tears. I love a good book or a matinee but I am a TV junkie and I love my dog Booker even though he is very BAD.

I love when you catch glimpses of people at peace, perhaps when they are with their family, holding their baby, singing in the car. I love when people are full of quiet joy or shouting it out in wild abandon. I was asked why I do this work and I believe it is because I know far too many people are not living in peace. I know that too many people are not accepted for who they are, that too many people are stifled, shut down, beaten down, marginalized, demeaned, discarded, damaged, oppressed. I believe as a people that we are better than this – we deserve better, and we owe it to ourselves to ‘give’ better. I signed on to Green Dot etc. because it speaks to me in these terms – everyone has the ability to ‘give’ something and Green Dot etc. helps us discover what that might be.
