I want to live in the world of 100 years ago when the light bulb was rare.  When families lived together and two or three generations passed around old family stories, wisdom, and support.  In good times and bad times there was always hope.

I hate plastics and don't understand why people think it is healthier to buy water or anything else in plastic containers. It is a waste of money, resources and serves as a pollutant.  We need to improve the quality of the water that we use. 
 Whether is comes from the tap or in irrigation systems used in farming, we need to remove the contaminants, bacteria, drugs and other pollutants. 

If not by choice then with laws, we need clean water and a clean environment.
 I use and only buy items in glass containers and filter the water from the tap.  Only using when necessary and not wastefully. I encourage everyone to do the same.

I hate electronics.  For as much communication that transpires in nanoseconds we have become the most detached civilization to have ever existed.  We don't meet with friends or family in any setting face-to-face instead people text, IM, or some other ridiculous new format. We have alienated ourselves.

We need the basics.  When I look around I want to see want I own, not what I owe.  I want to see, feel, and hear my family and friends.  My pets are fun to be with not some trend that I carry around in a pouch. I interact with my surroundings in both positive and sadly negative ways.

I love to participate in outdoor activities.  Watch the sunrise and sunset in the mountains, over the ocean, and yes, even in the city.  I love to watch nature as spring nears and the buds appear.  The creatures of the wild, big and small, reappear from the winter frost. 

I am not a joiner. I am an active observer . . . a participant.  I do my part no matter how small because every journey begins with one solitary step.  I may not be here to see the rebirth of planet, Earth, but I know I will make every effort not to cause its demise.
