“You need to write for real.”
“No, I don’t, I need to drink six more cups of coffee and survive the day,” I thought. “Yes,” I said instead.
I kept that promise to a good friend, and this blog was born.
Sort of. “Okay, make me a blog,” I said.
“You don’t need me for that, you can do it yourself,” he said.
Except I couldn’t, because I really didn’t know how blogs got on the internet. I just read a few which took a long time to load because my internet was so slow.
That’s all water under the bridge.
Today, I’m writing for real.
I won’t save the universe, be famous, defeat the problems of education, achieve enlightenment, run for president, or get entirely off the grid.
I will, however, write about the windmills I fight along the way.
I’m an author, educator, mom, earth-loving, Gandhi-contemplating sustainability-driven vegetarian. I’m a 4AM riser, 8PM sleeper. I drink way too much coffee. My son said that makes me a drug addict, because caffeine is a drug.
I’m looking for the meaning of life. Haven’t found it yet, but maybe it’s at the bottom of the next cup of joe.
I want to:
- rid the world of packaged goods, one box and carton at a time
- fill my house with mason jars and dried beans.
- raise a boy who doesn’t become a mutant.
- live a healthy sustainable lifestyle
- grow my own food
Most of all, I want world peace and an end to human suffering. And another cup of coffee.
