Ask Me Anything: Waylon Lewis, founder of Elephant Journal, on How to Save the World through Words—& make a Living Doing So.

“I interviewed Lester Brown years ago, and he said to me, ‘media is the key to saving the planet, and us.’ Communication, whether in a relationship or via a website, like ours, or small blog, or one’s Facebook page, can be the opposite of hype, PR, discursive BS. There’s a Someecard that makes fun of society’s rampant oversharing: it has a picture of someone saying, ‘Instead of interacting with my friends, I’m going to share a quote on their Facebook wall.’ We can do more—and less—than that. As Kerouac said, to paraphrase, ‘it’s what we least want to admit to that the world is most bleeding to hear.’ Once in a while, something genuine and real comes up. Share that.” ~ Waylon Lewis
