i believe in

the powerful gesture of carrying a reusable mug

new stories

old wood

riding bicycles

not owning what we don’t need

local book stores

telling our children the truth, always, even when it’s difficult

unseen acts of integrity

light rail

dark skies

the poetry of mary oliver, the philosophy of thich nhat hanh, the painting of mary cassatt

eating slowly while sitting down

sitting down

standing up

the innate human capacity to live in tune with nature

magic

spirits

our future.
