I took the photo above a few minutes ago. Yes. That’s my foot in the picture. I put it there for scale. My foot is, oddly enough, almost exactly a foot long. So you can see how big the aeonium has grown over several months. Here’s a picture of that section of the front yard:
Compare that view with several months ago by visiting my post earlier this week:
Your Neighborhood Changes And Grows (I)
Despite the slightly different view you should be able to notice that change and growth has taken place. It’s not always incredibly obvious and sometimes it doesn’t happen fast but, just like change in our yard, change is taking place in your neighborhood and mine.
Let’s be proactive and make positive change.
What say you?
After turning 50 yesterday I took some time to be reflective and explore possibilities for improving neighborhoods like mine (currently in San Marcos, CA) and yours. Below is a link information on Walklive.org that may be of help in building a more successful neighborhood/community or improving one that’s doing well.
There Is Potentially ENORMOUS Long-Term Impact For Your Neighborhood Or Community.
From the website:
Our Mission, Our Focus
The Institute’s vision is to create healthy, connected communities that support active living and that advance opportunities for all people through walkable streets, livable cities and better built environments.
The Institute’s mission is to inspire, teach, connect and support communities in their efforts to improve health and well-being through better built environments.
We inspire by helping communities envision a better future, by sharing examples and success stories and by displaying a personal commitment to the movement.
We teach the benefits of walkability and livability, best practices in designing for active transportation and strategies for successful civic engagement and implementation.
We connect community members and leaders to important resources, engage them in the process, and help them communicate with each other.
We support with ongoing guidance, educational materials and by celebrating successes widely.
The Institute was formed for charitable, educational and scientific purposes to help communities address the negative effects of the built environment on health, safety, social welfare, economic vitality, environmental sustainability, and overall quality of life.
What are your nuts and bolts ideas for things that need improvement in San Marcos or your neighborhood/community?
