Mother Earth News Fair Crowd 

When you have a passion for something, it seems that you continue to notice all connections that tie your passion to the many realities around you. I'm passionate about conscious, intentional, clear, long range parenting. As a mother, business woman, wife, author of a parenting book, and someone who cares deeply about being a good steward of the earth, I was enthralled by the lectures at the Mother Earth News Fair in Puyallup, Wash. I listened to lecturer after lecturer cover topics from renewable energy, small-scale farming, green building, organic gardening, simple living, and citizen solidarity building. While I listened, I pondered ways to weave these powerful themes into our children's lives.

Highlights from the FAIR

I'd like to share some of the highlights:

Bryan Welch spoke about the beauty and abundance that surround us, he asked a stunning question about lifespan: “If you could live forever or extend your lifespan to a much longer range, would you choose to do it?” He asked us to think about what impact longer lifespans would have on overpopulation and the Earth's resources. He told us that he'd targeted an end-date for his life. This is not to say that he's going to end his life by a certain date but that his date would mark a full and productive life. Wouldn’t it be lovely to teach our children that it's not the quantity of achievements and acquisitions that count but the quality? When we settle into thinking of life as temporary, our time on Earth becomes the most valuable commodity we have.
