Well, I met Janet, a fellow Colloquium-goer, this morning at our hotel. My luggage arrived on the first flight from Memphis, none the worse for wear. We stocked up on supplies at Walmart, and then drove her rented SUV to Quiet Valley Ranch, all the while chatting about sustainability. Then we set up our petrochemical-derived tents and unpacked our plastic canvas knapsacks and folding chairs. Long live sustainability!
Tonight, Penny Livingston-Stark opens the Colloquium with a talk about "natural building, permaculture and regenerative design". Off I go!
Oh, and a guy in a Utilikilt just walked by; so cool.
