That is the goal that preoccupies my mind these days. Surely there must be a better way - not only for me to live, but for everyone to live. What can I do to be a levee for those who need a break, and a reservoir for those who are far too close to breaking? And how can I extend a helping hand to not only people, but the land and the creatures that I love? Now that graduation has finally ceased sneaking up on me and is simply loudly announcing its imminent arrival, it's time for me to take my next step. I appreciate that the end of college is booting me along into the next phase of my life. I'm just not quite sure what it will look like, yet. At least the first summer of the rest of my life will be a green one.
