“I will live simply in the future (even more than now!) and live with others
cooperatively (which i already am doing) to preserve what we have left of our
energy supply. Also, grow most of my own food.
I have a goal of “divorcing” my car and just walk, ride by bike or use public
transportation now that i am retired.
Will continue to do volunteer work in my community within walking distance of
my home. Keep running bicycling, meditating and….”

“A lot of that is wrapped up in my work. I am a Director of the Vermont Land Trust. Ten percent of the state of Vermont is now under trust. I live in a bubble. Vermont is a bubble. We produced Bernie Sanders. Vermont leads the nation in CSA’s and local food consumption.

“Tomorrow we will be much more connected to our local resources. Twenty years ago we didn’t have this conversation. In that time we put 100,000 acres into conservation. Prior to my first bike trip I worked for Monsanto. I wore protective suits and needed blood tests every four days to check the toxins in my blood. I did it to save for an around the world trip. When I came home, I couldn’t go back to that.

“We need to get a handle on the corporations. They run the show. Nobody likes them but they are the way we live.”

About paulefallon

Greetings reader. I am a writer, architect, cyclist and father from Cambridge, MA. My primary blog, theawkwardpose.com is an archive of all my published writing. The title refers to a sequence of three yoga positions that increase focus and build strength by shifting the body’s center of gravity. The objective is balance without stability. My writing addresses opposing tension in our world, and my attempt to find balance through understanding that opposition. During 2015-2106 I am cycling through all 48 mainland United States and asking the question "How will we live tomorrow?" That journey is chronicled in a dedicated blog, www.howwillwelivetomorrw.com, that includes personal writing related to my adventure as well as others' responses to my question. Thank you for visiting.
