After my post from October 24, 2021 I realized what a great metaphor an air-dried crunchy towel is for the minor discomforts we need to embrace now to prepare us for bigger behavioral changes and larger inconveniences and discomforts going forward. The sooner we do, the better for all of us, meaning all living things throughout the world.
I hope you find these musings helpful, somewhat humorous and ideally motivating. Please share your responses going forward, I am a student of life and love learning from others' experiences. and perspectives
Here's the situation. I moved from Utah to Oregon last summer. I started developing The Crunchy Towel Collective Blog to build a community that could share feelings about climate change, ideas on how to prepare for it and perhaps contribute less to its direness. But, along the way, my father died, I started a new job and had left the Salt Lake community that supported me for the last 19 years. So, I missed making the blog postings I promised at the beginning of 2022. I would say I let let myself down, but in truth, I needed time to process and a bit more inspiration to continue. And, I think I have found my resolve and inspiration- yay! More about that in the coming posts. For now, I just wanted to pass on this video of a hopeful act that combines art and pollution control, by turning pollution into paint, check it out: https://twistedsifter.com/tag/iron-oxide/
