About Me

My name is Linda and I live on the Central California Coast, home to one of the few native Monterey Pine forests in California. Although the highway is visible from my house, I live among the forest trees and seeing deer and other wildlife in the yard is a frequent occurrence. This is the closest I have ever lived to nature.

Over the past several years, I’ve become increasingly aware that what we do and don’t do is negatively impacting our planet which not only harms current and future people, but also plants, animals, and the earth. We need to change and adopt a sustainable way of living, working, and sharing the earth. Everyone can do something to help.

My mission is to convince myself and other unlikely environmentalists to live more lightly on Earth to keep it habitable for my children, your children, everyone else’s children, and future children.

The purpose of this blog is to encourage dialogue, sharing of ideas, and personal action.

I hope you will join me on this journey.
