A long, long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away, blue avocados grew wild and with abandon. Unicorns fed on them. Dragons sometimes mistook them for pterodactyl eggs. A few managed to hitch a ride on a meteor and ended up in Central America, where the ancient Maya cultivated them and loved them. Their priests broke open the seeds to foretell the future. One summer equinox the priests opened an avocado seed and gasped in horror. It foretold the destruction of the Mayan world, and a thousand years of suffering under drought and foreign conquest.
The priests ordered all blue avocados destroyed, in a desperate effort to forestall the prophecy.
But the spirit of the blue avocado lived on, and it waited for many centuries for Al Gore to invent the World Wide Web. There it finally found the fertile soil it had long awaited, and grew strong again as BlueAvocado.org. Today it thrives wherever there are people who have hope in their hearts, and guacamole on their chips.
Actually, we just like the sound of Blue Avocado.
I’m looking forward to reading more thoughts, ideas, experiences and practical solutions for non-profits!
