"More often, stewardship is a matter of everyday people caring enough for each other and for the natural world that they do the things that are compatible with that care. These include particpating fully in recycling efforts, purchasing cars that pollute less and use less energy, turning off the lights in an empty room, refusing to engage in the conspicuous consumption constantly being urged on them by commercial advertising, supporting organizations that promote sustainable practices, staying informed to environmentally sensitive issues, and expressing their citizenship by voting for candidates who are sympathetic to environmental concerns and the need for sustainable development." -Environmental Science, 9th Edition, Richard T. Wright

After being out of school for a couple of years, keeping up with reading assignments and taking weekly exams are such foreign tasks, and will take some time getting use to again. Other than that, however, I am enjoying my Environmental Studies class very much. The topics of discussion are exactly where my interests lie, so it's very interesting to be able to read, talk, and learn more about it.

  1. jane, i've always thought that your blog could be a way to organize and promote the ideas you've had about environmental activism - you said it would be great to start a non-profit or foundation in that arena. why not start it here, on this blog? it's a potentially large project - task-wise and fulfillment-wise. just givin' ya some food for thought.

    totally supporting you.
    your older sis.
