Hello friend. I created and added to this site from 2015-2017, when I was embarking on an attempt -- at a relatively late time in career life years-- to shift my career to one in which i could find joy and purpose. A wise friend told me if you're not doing what you want to do, just start doing it! I knew I wanted to work in the environmental field and that I was a pretty ok writer - so I just did it. And "it" was this blog. I'm happy to share that since then, (and after a few years of volulnteering while working my previous career) I am now working my dream job, as Executive Director of Cape Fear River Watch in Wilmington NC. The topics and content of this blog, for the most part, are still pretty current. Unfortunately, the web company that was hosting the site went out of business and I missed that memo! I was able to save the content, without all the bells and whistles, and I'm working to restore it - if anything to remain a reminder to me that, as George Eliot wisely put it, "You're never too old to be what you might have been." Or maybe a more relatable way to put it - from the wise folks at Nike: "Just do it." ----
