Revised

Since beginning this blog I have moved from San Francisco back to Lawrence, KS back to San Francisco and recently moved 30 miles south to the Half Moon Bay Area.  Currently I’m living on a ranch in the unincorporated town of Moss Beach working as a ranch hand as I patiently wander through life as it is at this moment in time.  I’ve been working at a feed store 20 hours a week and out at the ranch for a few hours in the evenings.  The coast is less than a mile from my trailer on the ranch, and Mt. Montara greets me each morning (when the fog isn’t too heavy).  This has become my new life, and I enjoy it.  For the first couple weeks I allowed myself to become acclimated to my new location, but have recently started to become involved in local issues, specifically land preservation.  Posts on this blog will allow me to share my experiences as I transition to a more self-sustaining lifestyle while volunteering for local preservation organizations.  My photography will also take a significant role in my blog.  I hope you enjoy what you read and see.

Tickle Me Green

If green is the new pink, then I’m tricked out like a flamingo on Halloween.  “Green” has become a bit annoying from overuse, and beautifully illustrates the fundamental flaw of the new ‘green’ movement.  Just as ‘these colors don’t run’ shows what’s wrong with patriotism in our country.  Neither represent an educated understanding of the subject at hand.  From my perspective, a hybrid SUV is to environmentalism as the Patriot Act is to patriotism.  Unfortunately we have become engrossed as superficial participants in what I suppose I would refer to as neo-environmentalism.

But do not feel ashamed!  We are all trying to adapt to a new way of life, and the transition is by no means dialed.  My background in environmental science provides me with a comprehensive understanding of the issues at had.  Through this site I hope to educate people about the issues and provide practical solutions.

Good luck,

Ashton
