Moment of Clarity.

I had such a great moment yesterday.

I'd gone in to work early for a department meeting. In that meeting, our General Manager was talking about the usual things -- the Green Block, working with the URA, environmental consciousness, community involvement, etc., etc. And I was zoning out in my usual way -- thinking that it was just lip service, or that our so-called "concerns" were really just a fancy PR scheme, or whatever. And then it hit me: how great it was to be in an environment where we were even having the conversation. I mean, sure, The Co-op isn't perfect, and being there for any length of time can certainly be disillusioning. But yesterday I just had this goosebumps moment where I felt like I was in exactly the right place for me, because I really caught a glimpse of how rare it was to have the sort of job where I could be at work, getting paid, and be a part of a discussion about things like global environmental concerns, local race relations, and positive (non-religious) values.

I'm not sure if I'm even explaining it in a way that makes sense, but I wanted to share.

Cool!

We are often able to convince clients to, if not seek LEED certification, at least include some green elements. It's a good thing.
