Mission in Life...

So I've been my copius spare time...*can you feel the sarcasam here...I'm trying to lay it on here* *g* And...I feel the need to:
-help the environment
-be more healthy
-get others involved
-and have FUN!

So...this kinda all came about while I was in Thomas Jefferson Park this past weekend...I was helping out the NYRP ( in the "One Thing that's Green" event sponsored by JetBlue that is part of the One Million Trees NYC campaign ( It was a ton of work, but so much fun and for a great cause!

*An item of interest: I am following in my grandfather's footsteps! He retired from the NYC Parks Department (another sponsor of the Million Trees NYC) and he used to be a supervisor at Thomas Jefferson Park. And...the current commissioner of the Parks Dept. was a young man who volunteered there when my grandfather was working there. Small world, huh!* I am trying to pitch it to my department so that we can sponsor a corporate Volunteer Day. *Keep your fingers crossed for me*

And in other news...

I'm just trying to relax *s*, exercise more, and just enjoy it. I've got to do all I can since work has been especially stressful.

Anyway...I'll keep you posted on upcoming news. Next week, I'll be doing henna at the Celebration of Celts in Chatham, NY (May 3-4) and May 10 I am doing a bookbinding demo at the Museum of Biblical Arts ( Come and visit if you can =)
