the beauty of nature in a consumer economy

About Me

I have never been an activist, although I have always done my best to recycle everything I could.  Recently I feel like I haven’t been doing enough.  I love nature, its beauty and diversity.  I have become more and more worried that it is disappearing.  I have decided on a career change.  I would like my career to make a real difference and I would like the difference I make to involve saving the Earth.  I have been a theater designer and technician for almost a decade, including my work in graduate school.  To go from theater to science I have to go back to graduate school.  I have been taking classes at Northeastern and Mass Bay to get all my prerequisites.  I hope to apply to grad school in a year.  In the meantime, there are also things I can do that involve changing my lifestyle.  I have started using handkerchiefs instead of tissues whenever possible – I keep one in my purse, my car and my bedroom.  I bought a bike so that I can commute some days (when it’s warmer) on a bike instead of with my car.  I’ve started a vegetable and herb garden – it’s amazing how much packaging you get when grocery shopping.  Composting is next I think.

We will see what happens.
