Positively Fabulous February

be positive
For the month of February, I'm going to make a few changes.  I've grown weary of the lack of concern by so many for the environment and for our bodies.  For the time being, the uranium issue is off the table in our community.  The powers that be who would have received financial gain from lifting the uranium mining and milling moratorium have temporarily heard the voice of the people.  They've slithered back into their cave to regroup and re-emerge at another time.  The bills put before Virginia's General Assembly have been withdrawn, although they're trying to go through the backdoor somehow and get the governor involved.  However, it seems like for the time being there's no sense of urgency over the matter.  

So, during the month of love,  I'm taking a break from "activism."  I'm going to focus only on positive things.  I've narrowed my blog reading for February down to about 10 blogs, some of which do touch on sustainability and environmental issues, but for the most part have only good thoughts on them.  I'm going to temporarily stick my head in the sand and focus on channeling one of my role models, Lisa Douglas:

I've reached a level of frustration which I think I'm going to need to address in a similar way. I need a break. I think I'm going to put together a Facebook list of just close friends and family (the ones who are like-minded) and stick to that for awhile. I'm also going to skip the news and talk radio in the car and stick with music or an audio book. I need some peace in my life.

Kudos! I try to focus only my Tuesday blog on the bigger issues of the world, but let whatever feeds me drive my words. Show us your inspirations! Your stories of your own life, by the way, are wonderful in themselves...
