Got into a quick back and forth with my son the other day about what the world might look like in the future, and it left a vision in my head.
Now I dream of pastoral settings, renewable, sustainable technologies, and a continuation of today's reawakened interest in individuals creating art and music.
It begins with a realization that our way of life is facing a serious illness, yet we keep reaching for Band-Aids....
...and the thought that maybe when we want to be surrounded by nature, we really shouldn't have to go anywhere but out our front door.
I want to prop up my furry feet on a sustainably harvested wood stool, munch on popcorn originating from the stalks outside in my garden, and watch a movie on a screen developed from sustainable, cradle to cradle manufacturing, spending a quiet evening with friends in a cheery little solar powered hobbit house. (Well, with a bit higher roofline.)
And I'm in San Francisco.
Yeah, so goofy, I know. But the funny thing is, the crazy thing is, the wonderful magical transcendental thing is..if enough of us wanted this, we'd have it.
Let's stay in touch.
