    My commitment to a morning walk every day is like a meditation and it gets me communing with nature.  Also, finding a petition to sign or sending an email to my Congressional delegation is proving very possible.  All I need to do at least once per day is scroll through my FB where there are many opportunities to let my views and values be know.

    For the past week I have been caring for my school age grandchildren and I am appalled at how little they know about conservation,  renewable energy, or food waste. While I have been slow on the goals I set, I have spoken ad naseum about turning off lights, not wasting food and effects of climate change. Most of is going right over their head and they tell me none of it is discussed in school. I have managed to buy no extra food, eat leftovers and recycle some jars into Halloween art projects. This should be easier with children, not harder!

      I really appreciate that you are doing this with your grandkids! As they repeatedly see the impact that those small things can do, it will make a difference with how they see things. Thank you for your example!

    Off to a good start.  I'll get by with a little help from my friends.

    Excited about getting started with the EcoChallenge today, especially so soon after the completion of our Season of Creation. I am hopeful that this will be an impactful challenge for a lasting transformation and as Valerie Chapman said in her reflection for our St. Francis vigil last Tuesday, “It is, in the end, only love that can move us toward lasting transformation.”

    This challenge was so helpful to me last year and made a difference in my mental outlook.

    A big project for me this year was our parish garden since I knew  nothing about gardens or plants. I have learned a lot about myself in the process.
