The Sun Will Come Out Tomorrow....

Photograph number 5000.  (taken since the first one in August 2009)
Let us not only hope for better things to come, but let's work together to make that happen.  Choose something you really care about.  Stand up and step out.  Become a voice.  I have just done so, myself.  My environmental concern is water.  I am putting my money where my mouth is with a membership (and a promise to DO something as opposed to being a "clicktivist"...) in the Lower Greenbrier River Watershed alliance.  I care about water.  Clean drinking water, and pristine aquatic environments.  I care about what industry is doing to water, how it is being used, privatized, stolen.  By focusing on one thing, I believe I can be more useful to a cause, than by trying to be a Sherwin Williams and "cover the earth."  So, between seeking to bring about "civil" debate and discussion, and doing something meaningful instead of just griping about things in general, perhaps I put one woman's restless soul to work for something the world needs.

Have a delightful weekend!  We're getting a little respite from cold and wind.  The sun has come!
See you Monday  


  1. Always feels good to do something positive.

  2. Oh, you are so right. We all have to help. Hope you got some sunshine like we did. Still too much snow around, but the sun is at least melting some of it.

  3. Nice! I found you by way of Folkways Notebook, and I'm glad I did.

  4. Granny Sue! Welcome!!! So glad you stopped by for a visit! Nice to see a new face among my on-so-valued readers! Isn't Barbara's blog breathtaking???!!! I can simply get lost in it! Thanks for coming!

    Yes, Vicki, doing something positive is good. There's so much negative "out" there!

    No sun for us, NCMW. Just CLOUDS :-9(( And some snow to make it white,again, last evening.
