Yesterday I was asked to send questions to Guy Laliberte, in space! Guy is at the International Space Station to promote the cause of All for Water, Water for All. For more detail, please read yesterday’s post.
Many of you were generous enough to help us compile a list of questions for Guy which we forwarded to him. Today, I received this audio file back from his team. It is a part of the interview where they asked Guy seven questions- and two of them were from InspireMeToday.com!
Here’s the audio file for you to listen to. Please keep in mind this telephone conversation took place IN SPACE, so the reception is a bit difficult at spots, but well worth listening for a few minutes.
We’re hoping to get answers to the remaining questions upon Guy’s return. Thank you again for posting your questions. We hope you enjoy this little bit of live excitement, from space.
Please tune in tonight to watch OneDrop.org‘s event, being broadcast globally. It begins in just two hours!
Big hugs and love to all of you.
Here is a transcript of our two questions with Guy’s answers….
From Gail Goodwin via Huffington Post: Cirque du Soleil is all about seeing things from a different perspective. When you look at Earth from the perspective of the space station, what does that make you feel in reference to our care taking of the planet and of humanity?
Guy: Well, first of all when you see Earth from up here it gives you an entire other perspective. First of all it’s so emotional. It’s like living art in front of your eyes. But what really struck me was to see that thin layer of protection. As much as I look away into space, in space and around, what you see there is actually fantastic… and fragile. So in the end you see beauty but also fragility within the universe.
Technician: Ok, one minute left. Question from Gail Goodwin, Huffington Post: What have you learned from this experience that may have inspire you or that will make a difference in the rest of your life?
Guy: Well it will definitely inspire me and will definitely have an impact on the rest of my life. Many impacts, I think, you know, creatively, personally, in the [distorted], the relationships I have with people. You cannot do such a trip without having an impact on your personal life and the future of your life.
