And here we are
The Grist story has been published. Whew. It was a long road but well worth it and I'd like to thank Grist for allowing me to tell this story.
I've been asked what I've learned from this experience and I struggle with that question. Whatever it is I take away from having two young children, riding the bus, walking and making small, daily efforts to live a more simple, less harmful life, I think it's still happening. I don't pretend to have the answers, or know that my efforts are going to make any difference in the long run, but do know I'm doing the best I can with the knowledge I have. And I try to do a little better every day.
Anyhow, thanks for reading. Take the bus. Go for a walk. Enjoy yourself.
