Who says a single person can't make a difference? This Academy Award-winning short film, based on a story by Jean Giono, was created in 1987 by renowned animator Frederick Back. It beautifully showcases one shepherd's long and successful effort to re-forest a desolate valley in the foothills of the Alps near Provence in the first half of the 20th century.

    I have not yet watched the video..I will..but when I saw the title I immediately thought of Johnny Appleseed who planted apple trees in New England years ago.

    I'm not sure where to start! That one person can make a difference… yes. That another could share something so incredibly beautiful through his art? The hope I feel during these tumultuous times… That KarmaTube and the people behind it made it possible for me to experience? The celebration of interconnectedness is a beautiful thing. Thank you.

    the visual beauty, the message of living each day, the power of being present to each moment. It is simply beautifully moving.

    I have used this video in dozens of community building seminars since the early 80's. It is a metaphor of what our lives are about. Thanks for disseminating information about this important concept as an age of chaos seems to invade our societies.
