Nature-David Suzuki- Nowtopia-toxic personalities -the road to recovery



I love these shots; too bad I can't zoom. We are surrounded by mountains of which some are snow capped all year round.

David Suzuki interview:

Middle of the page, Part 2 : Nowtopia (click on the "listen to part 2:" below the Nowtopia article)

I love finding articles, listening to interviews and documentaries that break through the clutter of doom and gloom and actually give you something to act upon.

Toxic people:

This past month or so, I've met so many toxic people who aren't happy unless they're being verbally/ emotionally abusive trying to rationalize their own shortcomings. Way too many! Everything was compounded by the fact that I worked way too many days and nights for over a month and am burnt out so my emotional stated was pushed to the max.

I shut everything out this weekend and made it my "retreat" weekend to regroup and recharge.

Road to recovery: Thanksgiving weekend.

I'm lucky that don't need to go anywhere, or spend any money on therapy (retail therapy included :P), I am rich with everything I need right here at home, and am surrounded by family and friends and pups that make my insides beam with light, laughter and love.

Hopefully one day if more and more people focus on eco solutions that it'll squeeze out all the doom and gloomers.

Hi Katherine!

You're last paragraph ... beautifully stated. There is so much more to "rich" than the typical definition. And that so much more is so much more important.

My mom can identify. She has what she always wanted: a house in the woods where she can just fling open the back doors and we all go howling outside--into a huge fenced in area. The beauty of the mountains (we live near the 'scenic city' Chattanooga) and the quiet solitude make it all worthwhile to her. No toxic anything. We live in peace here (well, except when we see a squirrel...)

love & wags,
