This blog started as letters to my daughter to chronicle our family's hands-on journey to reduce our ecological impact. Through conversations, compost, fabric, and small baby steps, these letters reflect our evolution into something more healthy, local, aware, and community-centered.

The Easter Egg Artists
Two years ago, Hannah and I read and loved The Easter Egg Artists book. And we continue to come back to it for inspiration. A few days ago I said, "When I grow up, I want to be a doctor and go to other countries to help people through the Doctors Without Borders program." Hannah, now age four, responded with this. "When I grow up, I want to travel all over the world and go shopping and be an artist and paint buildings like Easter Abbott." (His real name is Orson.) I can imagine Hannah in another land painting stripes and polka dots and flowers upon a bridge or airplane or skyscraper. She will most certainly enjoy painting the world with beautiful colors. And all inspired by another awesome book we found at our local library.
