It’s Great To Be Alive
is one of those days. It was picture perfect, here in Redding, and well
worth being outside enjoying the sunshine and mild temperatures.
Perfect pictures were eager to flow through the Leica lens on the Lumix
FZ8, to imprint themselves briefly on the CCD sensor, and then, to fill
the SD card as ones and zeros.
Here are a few translations of those 1’s and 0’s;
world around us, is the only one we have. You would think that everyone
would treat this planet with care, since all life depends upon it.
there are people who are incapable grasping the fact that they are only
one of many pieces that are crucial to completing the puzzle. The most
obvious of the oblivious, (such as those in the fossil fuel industry),
are not the only destructive forces. Those of us who have been
conditioned to support such wholesale planetary destruction are
contributing to this trashing of paradise by not insisting on
alternative energy to power our transportation, homes, and industries.
We need to take control of how we power our modern lives, lest we continue contributing to Earth’s demise by burning fossil fuels for our power needs.
I have been slowly
carefully collecting data about solar power, (cost, subsidies, selling
peak power to the grid, various technologies for photovoltaic roof
panels, and researching existing facilities that use solar energy), so I
can submit a proposal to the corporation that owns the Treehouse
That’s just one thing I can do, there are plenty more solutions to prevent the dissolution of life as we know it. Here Are 20 of them.
The Treehouse; The other P in P&P was sidelined with a knee injury
and couldn’t play piano at the Monday Music Fest. I thank the residents
who showed up to sing along and add their energy to my solo act. We all
look forward to Peggy's return, next Monday.
I also want
to thank Kathern Sherwood for coming in and singing 4 rousing songs
with me. Everyone had fun and afterward, dessert was served for those
who worked up an appetite.
There Still Is Time
