About me

Gender MALE
Occupation Volunteer Activist (see About Me, below)
Location Glendale, L.A. area, California
Introduction My mission is to do what I can to help steer our society away from environmental folly. Integral to this is living more simply and lightly on the Earth. I am active both with PostConsumers.com and in the Sierra Club. In the Club, I work mainly on Sustainable Consumption. Spiritually I respect any religion that respects other religions. I feel closer to divinity when immersed in nature or in meaningful communication with others. To me Gaia, Mother Earth, is a living essence. Ethically I prefer honesty, mutuality, a sense of brotherhood and sisterhood with all peoples, and consciousness of the interdependent web of life on Earth. I strive to eat healthily for my body and sustainably for the planet. Life is long enough to enjoy the moment rather than rush. I like to smell the roses, have random conversations with strangers, and savor my friends and family.
