“…I’m Glad I Know You, George Bailey!”

Happily, many of us just had a short break, a breather, a catnap away from the fretting and the struggling and the urgency and foreboding that comes with working on sustainability.
As you rise and turn to your overcoats and galoshes once more, take stock of your own impact, of what your contributions mean to us all.

How? We suggest the George Bailey method: what would the world have been like if you had never been born?

So That’s Where it Was!

A cross-country trip via Greyhound occasioned a stop in the blasted moonscape of Sudbury, Ontario. It was a weird place in 1975, with a giant Canadian nickel presiding over a town with no trees, no animals or birds, just rock stained black by metals.
