Green is cool. I’m all for it. Probably because I’m not quite centered in this world and simply believe we forget to tele-transport ourselves.
I do in fact have some kind of point. The point will though meander, be forewarned.
Here are my thoughts on Go Green.
The North East is about to experience a heat wave.
Unemployment rates have soared.
Million dollar homes are in foreclosure.
I now rinse glass and plastics and ask myself, hmmm, what can this hold? Can this hold lentils, rice, vegetables from the garden? GARDEN? Yes, despite the deer, we are trying to grow one.
Ripped up clothes? I keep them. I can make rags or quilts or whatever, and yes, you may have guessed, I am not a gifted seamstress, I am an idea girl, better off spinning tales then making them come to light.
So what does Go Green mean to most of us?
Plain and simple.
Wind turbines to the extent we can make or otherwise afford them on our roofs.
Making gallons of decaf chilled green tea, pans of baked ziti, organic cookies, whatever and everything in advance before the heat index hits 100 tomorrow. And if the power fails?
Oh boy, we better eat up and eat up quick, thank God the oregano, basil, sage, rosemary and dill hit fruition. Between that and bottles of water, we will get by.
So, what is Go Green to you?
I call it the new survival economy.
Peace to you and yours.
