A change to the way we "Urbanite"
So, it's been FOREVER since I've put up anything new. Both Sara and I are working full time (not to mention the whole full-time mom thing) and our time is limited
at best. The time that I do get, I want to make art, not write; that being said, we still have so much that we want to share with you!
To better accomplish our goals, we are going to turn to a more "blog-like" approach. New information will be featured here, and then archived to the appropriate menu when new information appears.
So why come up with a website called “The Green Urbanite”?
While exploring the web one day, I stumbled across a manifesto of sorts that a group had come up with to define the word “Urbanite.” While most dictionaries will simply say “City dweller” they went on to explain that it was more than just that, it was a way of thinking and living that not only involved a respect for living within close proximity of others, but also embracing a lifestyle that was conscious of your impact on the environment as well as the lives of those who surround you. Sara and I are all educated, intelligent and involved women, but we are also moms. Disparaging of no one, there is a certain hypersensitivity that you develop to your surroundings when you introduce your progeny to it. I have always been aware of how my surroundings affect my mood, my inspirations, my general well-being; then my daughter came along and I went into hyper-drive. I don’t want to shield her from the world, but I’d like to help make sure that it’s as decent a place to live in as I can impact.
So, welcome to 2 women’s little corner of the world. We aren’t going to preach at you about death chemicals, ask you to eat only organic grass, or beat you with politics. Instead, we are offering you insight into areas that we ourselves are interested and constantly exploring. So, read, enjoy, participate and be part of the Green Urbanite.
