So, I feel that an apology is in order since it’s been almost a month since I posted. And it’s not because there isn’t a plethora of sustainable activities going on in this region. There is. And I want to write about All of them.
The real reason why it has been so long since I’ve posted is that I was doing nothing in Florida. That’s right. I drove down to Key West with a bunch of other young and too-poor-for-a-plane-tickets and we were stuck down there for two weeks because A) we couldn’t get on a plane back to Cleveland, and B) we were staying with a band that was playing down there for New Years and they weren’t driving back until two weeks later. So there we were, in Key West, having a blast and not doing anything even remotely productive.
The reason why I don’t think that this is a lame excuse, or at least the way I will justify it, is because sustainability isn’t just about the environment and economic development. You can’t forget the social side of sustainability. Everyone needs and deserves a break sometimes. And why not go to Florida to do it?
The other two weeks I’ve spent catching up at work, planning a new blog for the Northeast Ohio Citizen’s League, and applying to grad schools for environmental journalism.
Now that I’m back and caught up, I will catch you up on everything’s that going on in the world of urban post-industrial sustainability in the Great Lakes region. Some of this stuff is really quite exciting.
