I had the opportunity to see a film yesterday called An Inconvenient truth

I cannot stress enough the importance of seeing this film.

It has galvanized my internal motivation, fortified my resolve, and supported every decision I have made in this house.

Go see the film. Do it as a personal favor to me, or to yourself.

The film follows Al Gore as he breaks down the severity of global warming in a concise and very real manner. It is unapologetically grim, and simultaneously hopeful. It left me feeling that I'm on the right path, but I can, must, and will do more.

So here is the more: I'm going to begin a letter writing campaign of one. Maybe some of you will join me, but I'm starting right here at my desk.

I wrote a letter to my council member when I started this house to alert him to my project and to begin a dialogue about green building, sustainable neighborhood policies, and overall intentional living.

No response.

So I'm going to send it again, and again, and again. And not just to him, because we cannot afford to wait.

The era of procrastination, of half-measures, of soothing and baffling expedients, of delays, is coming to a close. In its place, we are entering a period of consequences. -Winston Churchill
