Long time readers may notice that I've not posted much recently. I suppose I've been going through a little something lately. It all came spilling out the other day when I met blogger bud, Ruchi (aka Arduous) for cupcakes. Hey, a girl's gotta eat! Anywho, Ruchi, great gal that she is ended up typing up all my woes in a nifty little post that anyone who's been on this green journey for a while should read: "Is Living Sustainably Unsustainable".
It kind of reminds me of a post Burbs put up here on the Booth a few months after retiring: "To Crazy and Back Again."
And just as I'm wondering whether anyone can live the "green life" forever, real life friend and regular Booth guest poster, Jess Nichols makes her own confession about falling off the eco-wagon.
Even though many of us greenies have backslid here and there, I still think we're headed in the right direction. Indeed, some argue that we are heading into the Century of Minimalism - one where "we'll all be learning to use less, reuse more, and find greater value in the things we have close at hand." Frankly, even this burnt out eco blogger thinks that sounds pretty good.
So good in fact, I might take up a few Zen Habits and make the Lazy Manifesto: Do Less. Then Do Even Less.
And, on that note, I'll do less right now by signing off. Happy Sunday.
