  1. Thanks so much Katy for Sharing Your World! Dawn is right, that group sounds like just the thing right now. People need a boost. I like your answer to Question #1, but you put your finger squarely on the problem which prevents positive action (IMO). People don’t speak out because the ones who could do something (those with the power for changing big issues) don’t/won’t listen to the ‘little’ guy any more. Trying to even get an appointment with a politician or someone in a power position (the 1%ers, philanthropists and the like) is made so difficult that it becomes discouraging and I suspect most give up because they’re too discouraged. But then small groups (like yours), doing positive things on a grass roots level, can cause change. It’s just hard to see at first. Good for you! That time phenomenon around blogging? They call it ‘being in the zone”. “In the Zone” time has absolutely no meaning I think! 😄 Have a wonderful week!

    • Thanks for your comments, Melanie! Politicians are notoriously slow at doing anything, but on the other hand, there are a lot of people who vote for candidates who don’t do a damn thing (or even promise to do anything) about the environment. If you haven’t seen Don’t Look Up, put it on your must see list!
      And then there are the obstructionists, like Joe Manchin and Kirsten Sinema who are so “pious” in their support of the filibuster that they are unwilling to stand by their party to get these big initiatives thru Congress. They are very naive to think the GOP will support anything the Dems propose – have they been living in a cave for the last five years??! (Sorry for the rant, but I can’t help be discouraged right now.)
