Dear Patreon (Earth Link):

I am concerned with the well being of our beloved Earth and ourselves. I believe in restoring the beauty of nature and things. We are naturally drawn to beauty. This is why we smile at a baby's face. This is why we like symmetrical faces. And, this is why flowers, birds, or cute stuffed animals make us happy.  And, this is why mountains fill us with a sense of awe. Scientists and mystics have sought to explain this behavior. A scientists may tell you that being drawn to a healthy, strong, intelligent, or attractive partner, has to do with the genes that are to be selected to the next generation. A mystic, may on the other hand, convey this drive as what the soul is seeking. No matter what the explanation may be, beauty is something we value. I am not talking about stardom or the lime light, but the things of life the touches our heart. The ability to connect and be uplifted by something beautiful in the world be it a rose or the stars, a caress or a smile...that is intrinsic to us. 

For the last few years I have seek  to communicating science with the public using twitter and writing in blogs. Dealing with issues of climate change, pollution and all the daily whereabouts of politicians and policies may drag one's energy down, the same energy one needs to help contribute to a better world. So I turned to children and the things they like. The things that make them happy.

I now seek to educate children using their own sense of curiosity, beauty and fun. This is how toys and science can come to play together naturally.  You can show kids how to do settings for play in the outdoors, and w/o saying a word, you are telling them that being in their natural environment is fun, and it is not dangerous. I believe children learn by example, and also in a natural way when they play and have fun. By showing their favorite pals indoors and outdoors, I seek to bring in the curiosity for their surroundings. At the same time, I hope to bring the smiles of the adults, when they would say, "I remember that!" or I had that toy. I was surprised to see a video of Dora doll with a bird have about 5,000 views. May we bring the smile in the little one in us, each day. Such a wise man was Antoine the Saint Exupery when he dedicated The Little Prince to Leon Werth, when Leon was a little boy.

Having time to read research papers and digest the science to write some essentials for you and the twitter world is relevant to me (or the grown up in me)-- and to the world we live in. I do not seek to be understood or to understand more, but to make things more understandable. The language of science like that of other professions, contains many jargons and particularities that make them inaccessible. Currently we can't afford to sustain keeping the public blindfolded about science. 

I would lie to you if I wouldn't say I don't need funds to be and to create. Of course I do.  I wish to stop being concerned about my bills, and being more and more free to share.  So, I pledge that you support me through the different venues so I can give more and improve the quality of the videos and information you and the public will receive.
