"From the darkness, sleeping light." Formerly luminus dormiens. Lux pacis, light of peace.

Quote: "Sometimes I think the surest sign that intelligent life exists elsewhere in the universe is that none of it has tried to contact us." --Bill Watterson, cartoonist, Calvin and Hobbes


Ways I prolong the environment (#1)

  1. Turn on shower.
  2. Shampoo and rinse my hair.
  3. Apply conditioner.
  4. Turn off shower.
  5. Suds my body up. (ooh, chilly) <==[uncharacteristic exclamation]
  6. Turn on shower.
  7. Let the water rinse all the soap and conditioner away.
  8. Turn off water; regret that it couldn't last longer.
  9. Shake yourself up; get towel.
  10. Dry yourself, getting out one by one.
  11. Enjoy the combination of evaporative cooling and convective warmth.

Water is so precious, not only to me, but to all other life on the planet. It is needed for trees to photosynthesize, how else can they get the electrons to replace the one lost in the light reaction? How else can we get the oxygen evolved from the plant?

I cannot bear to see how much all the water is being wasted, but I usually let it pass. I avoid seeing anyone waste water, because I'm not interested in imposing my belief on others. I mean, I can tell them what I do; I can tell them my philosophy; I can let them know that they can save water, but I won't yell at them. I live by my own examples, taking what exceptions I will.

By exceptions, I mean that if I were sick, I would let the water run in the shower so that I can be comforted where I have a headache or feel dis-ease. If I'm fully healthy, then I live Spartan-like, taking only what I need to maintain my sanity.
