Local Happenings

I enjoy focusing on the global level, as I've written of here before. Yet I appreciate being grounded and local, too!

Last night I joined pals from Sustainable Edmonds at an event for Sustainable Works hosted by Green Drinks. It was a clear evening and I enjoyed a spectacular sunset over the Olympic Mountains and Puget Sound on my bike ride home.

Speaking of the sound, People for Puget Sound organized a 10-10-10 work party at the Edmonds Marsh. My sister's grade school age kids eagerly joined me and an impressive gathering of volunteers for some good old mud.

In August I had the pleasure of participating in the "How To Bring About Large-Scale Behavior Change" workshop led by Joe Brewer and hosted by Sustainable Seattle. My guest blog post is here.

Meanwhile Beauty of Water projects continue to evolve and emerge in their own sense of rhythm. I have learned not to force collaborative art processes. "Spirit of Water" in partnership with Carol Schillios and the Fabric of Life is one of the collaborations I am excited about. More info on this wonderful project will come in the fullness of time...
