Welcome to September

As a new season approaches leaving summer behind, it is time for a serious consideration of the direction in which we are traveling, both as individuals and as a collective populace. For truly, we are at all times one living, breathing population moving in time with all else that surrounds us. Just as the leaves turn, we too continually undergo a beautiful process of change that leaves in its wake imprints of what we once were. It is time for us to raise our heads from the careless inhebriation of summer and take a deep sobering breath. We must now broaden our view beyond the parties and friendships of a carefree lifestyle and open our eyes to see the wreckage around us. While we were partying, Lebannon was burning. While we were watching the food network on a lazy afternoon, a child was shivering and starving. It's time to wake up.

In the months to come I will be posting updates on various political/environmental groups and events in the New York City/Long Island area along with more essays, parables and selected writings. I am currently in the process of assembling a team of journalists/writers to write for a newsletter that will be published monthly, entitled "iGNITe." The publication will also help to promote participation in local environmental conservation and political activism, while fostering a network of people who share the belief in the importance of such participation. If anyone is interested in writing/distributing/helping out in any way possible, please contact us via e-mail:

Tis the season to be active! And isn't that every season? Inching toward a new year we face many problems, as we tread over unsure ground and uncharted territory, but we should always remember that we are not going it alone; we are all in this together. If we come together, there is nothing that can stop us.

"The man who thinks he can and the man who thinks he can't are both correct."

More to come...

Stay Liberated
