Coral reefs dying, giant garbage patches in the ocean, permafrost and ice sheets melting, butterflies and frogs disappearing from the planet, oceans warming and acidifying, bark beetles and raging wildfires destroying forests, bigger and bigger super storms. . . 

Author holding head in hands

There’s no end to heartbreaking news about our planet, and I felt helpless to do anything about it.

No hope in sight, I succumbed to a myriad of ready distractions, from sitcoms to shoe sales to sangria. Do anything to tune out the anguish of witnessing the escalating assault on our beautiful planet home.

Then I started writing. Now I share, with humble and sometimes comedic candor, my experiences on the razor’s edge between Earth-mindfulness and eco-madness. Not because I’ve got it all figured out, but in solidarity with anyone else who’s wondering what on Earth any of us can do that will make a difference.

How do YOU deal with all the bad news about the Earth we know and love? Let’s connect and aid each other in discovering what each of us can do that will make a meaningful contribution at this time of great eco-upheaval.


The Love Earth Now: Not-fit-For-Print Edition blog chronicles the self-inflicted torture I endure as I stumble along the fine line between Earth-loving intentions and eco-madness.
