Shades of Green

Green is one of those colors that you either love or hate. Think about what green can mean. One can be green with envy. You’re rich if you have a lot of green. Energy derived from green sources means its renewable. Vermont has its Green Mountains. The moon was once thought to be made of […]

What Follows

It’s a lovely May day. The sun is shining brightly and the temperature is absolutely perfect. The mountains surrounding the village are covered in a haze of green and red, leaves eager to burst forth. No humidity, a light breeze. People are hanging out on porches, chatting to their neighbors.

Thirty Years To A Better You
