I HOLD TO THE VIEW THAT
WE SHOULD LOOK AFTER THIS WORLD OF OURS A GREAT DEAL BETTER THAN WE DO. IT’S A FASCINATING PLACE—AND THE ONLY ONE WE’VE GOT.
I KNOW IT IS ALL THE RAGE—BUT I HAVE NO GREAT DESIRE TO MOVE TO MARS

Most of my higher minded thoughts and behavior can be traced back to my much loved grandmother. I don’t recall my mother expressing any interest in the environment at all. Primarily she was interested in people and their sex lives—particularly as they related to herself—and not much else. The contrast between the two was nothing short of remarkable. About the only things that they both had in common were French governesses and speaking French. As best I can recall, they shared no common interests.
Largely thanks to my grandmother, I have been environmentally aware and concerned most of my life. Funnily enough, it is not a topic that seems to crop up in daily conversation today—except in relation to climate change. There, the main focus seems to be how climate change relates to wine.

As for Seattle, the sun is shining and the sky is blue.
