I can’t believe it has been over a month since I have posted. The Covid-19 lockdown that we have been living here in California has really knocked the stuffing out of me. Every time I go to the grocery store (the one close by my house that has “senior hours” and wide aisles) and I buy non-organic produce, I feel like I am living a lie. When I use the store’s plastic grocery bags, my soul dies a little (even though I am saving them rather than putting them in the trash). It has been definitely harder living the life I espouse and aspire to.
So, after taking a deep breath, I have decided that it is time to start walking the walk again. Now that I am no longer fearing life altering food shortages or the complete collapse of all our essential infrastructures, it’s time to step back up to the plate.
So I’m going to start by sharing on Facebook the websites, blogs and articles that I have been reading that speak to ongoing efforts to restore our environment and live more eco-conscious lives.
I read somewhere that we’re all in this together, but we are all in very different boats. I think we all need to do what we can reasonably do in these very strange times; just try our best.
