We Make the Road by Walking

Last night Terry drove me to the DC G.reyhound station through snow and darkness; I filled his ear with the book I'd been reading as I struggled to think through what the author was trying to do/say. A good, old-fashioned bull session ensued such as we've not had for quite some time - car time is good for that - during which T. distilled three principles for sustainability and social justice that I think we're going to use as a heuristic for our personal life philosophy from now on. The emphasis is on process.

1) Decentralizing power
2) Recognizing the interconnectedness of all things
3) Treating others as human

It's not the "what" you do as much as the "how." We make the road by walking.
