Application

Sustainability can be applied to almost anything: is a company sustainable, is the environment sustainable, is the lottery sustainable, is my body sustainable, and the list goes on. When we talk about sustainability in the design or urban planning profession, what exactly kind of sustainability are we talking about. Yes, something that lasts, and is adaptable and flexible and all the other things on that sustainability list, but it doesn’t mention environmental aspects. I thought the sustainability that designers focused on was environmental sustainability.

Counsel from elders seems to be a lost treasure. Lost are lessons learned that may contain pearls of wisdom that could have benefited the seeker. Having survived my share of hazardous crossings, I am pleased to be able to share a thought or two. The main lesson is to keep on learning. Read and seek out other points of view like visiting your blog. Finding what is ultimately important has lead me to appreciate actuality, efficiency and mindfulness. Helping others to see some of the forest through the trees is a rewarding benefit of age and maturity. synergistic lifestyle
