Ted Ernst is going to do the C3 class that starts Saturday. He’s volunteered to help invite his classmates into this weblog. In the course of a long conversation we’ve just had about this, we stumbled over more connections, resources, organizations and tools than my brain can possibly blog here now.
What we concluded, in the face of such overwhelm, is that what seems most important as members of an emerging C3 community is (1) Remembering and (2) Practices. Remembering… that we are not having to create something new. We have only to keep connecting the pieces, or dots. And Practices… it’s not about using less water or driving few miles, per se, but cleaning and commuting and doing all sorts of other things in ways that are easier and make us feel more alive.
As we become more visible in our Practices, it becomes easier for our friends and neighbors to notice that we are healthier, happier and more alive, helps them remember to ask us how we do what we do. So the best thing about our Projects is that it helps us be more visible in our Practices and reminds others to ask us how we get along so well in the green ways that we do.
