Avatar… Yes, Really

I know about all of the hype around Avatar, and how everyone thought it was the greatest thing since sliced bread.  That being said, I had no interest in seeing it.  I had to force myself to watch it last night, more than anything I kind of wanted to see what everyone was talking about.  So I did.

Let me just say that I never went into this movie thinking this would be a blogable experience.  But when the movie was over, I knew that it definitely was.

In my opinion the whole movie was about a sence of entitlement and a bigger picture.  When you think about it, it happens all of the time.  Someone thinks that they need something more than the next and it will benefit more people than you keeping it. 

I wonder what would happen if something was completely eliminated because it wasn’t ours to take and we could no longer get it?  Would the world come to an end?  I doubt it.  We would figure it out, because that’s what we do.  We are smart, even though sometimes we don’t always act that way. 

 If a global law was passed that we could no longer cut down trees the world would not end and we would be just fine.  Yes, people would be out of work, but new jobs would be created.  Where would we get printer paper and toilet paper.  We would figure it out, more jobs would be created to figure this out.  Hopefully this would mean a bigger focus on recycling (that’s just one of my hopes).  

I think that sometime we get so caught up in the next new thing that we forget that sometimes all we need are the basics.  We don’t have to keep taking and taking because we think it is something that we need.  I appreciate the practices of homesteading and sustainable living.  The world is not ours for the taking, everything in life is about give AND take.  Just dont forget the GIVE part.

Earth Day…My Favorite Day

earth_day_graphics_13
Earth Day is tomorrow and I get so excited when for this one day everyone is talking about what I talk about all year.  I am one of those girls that thinks “Earth Day is everyday”.  I truly wish that everyone would be more like-minded, and I know that more and more people are. But, I will take this one day a year to talk up the environment and how easy it really is for us to make it better.

Anyway…  I will absolutely be watching Oprah tomorrow, as she always has a great Earth Day Special.  I can’t wait!!!  And The City of Redmond is holding it’s annual Earth Day Dry Cannon Litter Pick Up on Saturday the 24th from 10:00 to 2:00@ Sam Johnson Park.  Be there if you can!!!  Check out what you can do to chip in in your community.

OK, HERE IT IS…THIS IS WHAT IT’S ALL ABOUT

Hi, my name is Dawn Robison.  I am a wife, mother of two, hair stylist, PTO member, Bunco player and huge into wanting everyone to take part in bettering not only their community, but the earth.  I don’t think that means that everyone needs to do everything “green”.  Doing what you can makes a difference.  If that means that you can just start a worm bin or just use reusable bags at the store then you are on your way.   

I have high hopes for this blog and what it represents.  I want this to be the place that you can ask question, tell us about your wonderful idea, and share some great green news you just heard.    I have been so inspired by other peoples blogs and websites.    I hope that this can become a great place for you to be inspired.  So PLEASE, don’t be shy, let us know what your thinking!!!
