Half as bad a Mordor


I just got home from the most epic guest speaker I've ever seen: her name is Maude Barlow and you might not have heard of her but she's a pretty big deal if we're talking global water policy. The lecture was on water privatization and bottled water, which is something I feel very strongly about. Regardless of your political orientation, it was a fascinating talk that was full of food for thought. Anyways, not to harp on about my own personal environmental interests but check here for more information.

Every time I introduce colour into my wardrobe, it's all or nothing. I guess I just have a thing for crazy multicoloured patterned shirts! This particular one was given to me by the absolutely wonderful Stylish Wanderer.

Caroline said...

you rock that crazy jazz shirt well!

and, i intend on looking into that speaker, you spoke of. the preservation and conservation of water are so much more important than most people realize

diane said...

I love knowing this "water" fact about you. It's good to stand up and fight for what you believe in. Too many people just go along with everything instead of researching, thinking, challenging, and effecting change. Good for you!
Nice duds. xo
