Human beings will be happier - not when they cure cancer or get to Mars or eliminate racial prejudice or flush Lake Erie but when they find ways to inhabit primitive communities again. That's my utopia.

Peeling Away the Veneer

Well, I've been here a little over two months now. I haven't had a chance to go back to Michigan yet and have had very little chance to get out to explore the many changes over the years since I left New Mexico. My wonderful neighbor still comes on Saturday mornings to give me two hours of respite care a week. Maybe with that help and the hope that my job will continue to allow me to telecommute, I can have a small sense of "having a life."

Today while I was buying a few items at the local co-op, Mountain View, which doesn't appear to have a website, I picked up a copy of Desert Exposure, one of my favorite local publications. In it was an article about The Greenhouse Project. Of course I read it a week after a weekend long Peak Oil/Climate Change Conference had been held, not that I could have gone, but I could have blogged about it had I known. The Greenhouse Project is encouraging, maybe even inspiring, if I had more knowledge. I need to research rainwater harvesting further.
From the references at this logo I found the following links to explore:
Gila Conservation Coalition
Gila Resources Information Project/Green Building
and the
Southwest Desert Sustainability Project
I've also found a local blog, Alternative Comment, that keeps me informed of energy policy and what the local government is, or, is not doing to help foster good energy policy, especially with regard to renewable alternatives.
I think the area's conservative veneer is beginning to peel away and I see a solid progressive foundation.
Joe will be here this week! I'll be making green chile stew for him whether my mom likes it or not. In fact, I may begin to do a lot more of what I like whether my mom likes it or not. She forgets about it 5 minutes later.
