i believe in

the powerful symbolic gesture of carrying a reusable mug


riding bicycles

not owning what we don’t need

used book stores

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

my sisters

unseen acts of integrity


loose tea

light rail

the poems of mary oliver, the teachings of thich nhat hanh, the drumming of meg white, the drawdown of paul hawken

eating slowly while sitting down

sitting down

standing up

our innate capacity to live in tune with nature



the future.
