A Ted Talk About Inclusivity

I found this TED talk very informative, so am sharing. 

It demonstrates that more often than not, when when we work to help someone else, we help ourselves.

Have a wonderful day!

Effort to Take Back Local Planning Control

You may have already seen this, but if not, and if you have an interest in retaining neighborhood "sense of place" visit this link:

As for me, I enjoy the feel of a neighborhood. The way to increase diversity is by increasing educational and economic opportunity for everyone, not by jamming high density housing into suburban and semi rural neighborhoods. That housing often ends up market rate, not "affordable." 
Most people want to be able to afford a nice little house in a safe neighborhood. If not, they can move to a city. By all means, build along the transit corridor, but don't take away a citizen's right to a say in the planning process. 

Thank You,

The Joy of Being


If you haven't seen the film "Mully" yet, please take some time to do so. I found it hard to watch at times, but it left me feeling hopeful and inspired. 

Also, after many requests for The Plant Studios' Records t-shirts, we had more made and opened up an online store. At first, we had it in preview mode, but decided to just ditch the password and open it up to all.  The shirt is super soft. Here is the link -

That is all for now. May you have a wonderful day!
