Back to School

It had been a long time since I had one of those nightmares about getting to the last day of the term and then realizing that I had forgotten to go to one of my classes all semester long. Well, they’re back, because I’m back at school.

I’m a few weeks into my Masters program, and my brain is melting out of my ears. I mean, it’s in a good way. But melting. And because I’m getting a Masters of Science in Sustainability, all of my spare time is filled with readings about different ways that the world will come to an end. Okay, that’s an exaggeration, but spending a good deal of time contemplating the planet’s perilous warming and resource depletion does produce a fair amount of anxiety.


I want my children to grow old in a world that can sustain their needs, their children’s needs, and their grandchildren’s needs. That’s why I’m doing this. Please remind me of that when I’m wondering why I decided that getting a Masters when I have two kids under three and working my day job was a good idea.

I’m going to spend some time in the coming weeks reviewing some of the literature that I’m reading for class, so far all of you sustainability nerds out there, buckle up! For those of you that are just here for the pretty garden photos, don’t fret! I won’t abandon that. You may just have to scroll past some of the nerdiness. :)

Spring is coming. Wishing y’all warm breezes and good gardening weather.

Happy growing,
