My neighborhood is my inspiration. I think about how we connect to each other as a small community, as a sort of micro-community. I think about how we teach and learn from each other in terms of issues of sustainability here in Lubbock.

I am interested in studying and writing about the intersection between sustainability, community, and connection to place.
I think all of these issues – sustainability, community, connection to place – are issues of survival. Without due attention to each, we will not survive as a species. In writing about them, I am adding my voice to others.
I enjoy working with Mortar Board and being involved in my neighborhood.
I am writing another book. This one will be a collection of essays.
Enjoy what you do and cut yourself some slack when things don’t always go the way you plan.
