NaBloPoMo's theme for August is GREEN. In the description I was e-mailed, they said they hoped gardeners and horticulturists (so many of them are bloggers--it's a natural fit) as well as environmentalists would step up.
I'm not really any of those things. I kill everything in our garden rather handily, and years after learning the word still get off on pointing out "impatiens" because the name sounds cool. And I recycle. I don't run the water while I brush my teeth, either. Oh, and I don't drive a Hummer. Other than that, I'm not sure how much of an environmentalist I am.
The point is, I might want to blog this theme, this month, starting with this day. So here is my introduction. Of course I'm going to need all your ideas about what else GREEN might mean. All that keeps coming up for me is being completely at sea doing something new for the first time. And I plan to milk that one for all it's worth.
But I won't do it inhumanely. It will be a gentle milking.
