Not easy being green sometimes....

I have been spending time visiting a loved one in the hospital lately. Interesting how easily it is to forget about Green Living during these difficult times. But that's what it is all about isn't it? Finding a way to stay focused even when it isn't always easy. So I have been going around turning off lights and TV's that are left turned on when the rooms are empty. You can't really recycle a lot of things in a hospital. It's all about keeping things sterile. It would appear to me that energy would be the one thing they could do to help with Green and Sustainable practices.

I feel like Job when he was smitten... he sat down and didn't say anything for a long time. I'm in a very quiet reflective place right now. I gave the book "The World Without Us" as a present to a family member for Christmas. Much to my surprise, he has actually been reading it. It's not an easy book to read at all but he has been interested. Awareness.... that is the first step.

You're doing great work and the entire planet is thankful for that. I have one suggestion, however. Perhaps you can change the background color of your blog from black to green. Black symbolizes carbon and using it on your blog would be a waste.

People wear black when the mourn. Black is a symbol too of the sadness that we feel. I grieve for what we have lost and what we will lose if the CO2 continues to rise. Thanks for stopping by...
