Sitting by the Fire: Change happens and will …

Most people don’t like change. The old saying is, “the only things that are certain in life are death and taxes.” Well, some people beat the government out of their taxes and it has been said that one has beaten death, but it is absolutely true that we all face change almost everyday of our lives. Change is truly the only thing that is certain. Now I would like to change the topic that I had planned to write about because what I have to say is too important to miss.

Sustainability: Sustainability: Returning to my joy …

I like to think I grew up in a world made of plants. As a child, I spent most of my time up a tree, tunneling through the underbrush, or in the garden. My mother and father were always outside, working together to make things grow and trying their hardest to get the three of us kids to help them weed, water, or whatever. When I was younger, my job in the garden was to plant the carrots each year. My mother planned it so that they would be ready to harvest around my birthday in August, thus showing me that the greatest gifts one can receive are those from the earth.
