How are you currently involved in the Transition movement?
Passionate for many years about environment. (Recycling since 1970 -- it was so much fun to throw those glass bottles into the dumpsters.) Member of CSA since mid-1990s in Blairstown NJ (Genesis Farm) and in Gainesville FL (Plowshares). Now living in Denver, where I hope to do more with Transition!
In what ways do you identify with the Transition movement? Why are you interested?
In 2007, my older daughter was 39. She was only 3 when Dr Seuss wrote The Lorax, 36 years before. Imagine if we had responded then…
In 2007, my first granddaughter was 3. So I imagined: In 36 more years (2043, to be exact), my grandchild’s generation will look at us over the heads of their children. And they will ask “What was it like in 2007?” And, depending on how we respond, beginning as soon as we “get the picture,” the next question is EITHER “How come you couldn’t see what was coming? How come you didn’t change?” OR “How did it feel to take charge and make those changes happen?”
What background and skills do you bring to this community?
social work, using vocal music for transformation (both individual and social), public presentation, and teaching; plus many years of life experience.
How can you help the growth/acceptance/vitality of the Transition movement?
I begin with acceptance of where people are at this time. Then I hope to take private dreams and strengths and give them a wider voice.

Sally, regarding the workshop Friday, I'm pretty sure it's a go, so I would suggest calling Donna (see her number on the event page) even as late as Thursday evening to let her know you're interested, and she'll inform you of the details at that point.
