It begins with a small path. An email from a fellow blogger at The Raspberry Rabbits, about a comment left and then a question..."are you participating in Project Genesis?"
I did not want to change or paraphrase a word she wrote. It was perfect as written. In this quiet way and through this wonderful blog venue, we can effect change to heal our mother, our planet. I'm a believer in personal change...quiet change...little things that have a marvelous ripple effect when many hands begin to follow. Come join us or stop by and see what others are doing to live in a more gentle manner on this earth. All are welcome.
We shall require a substantially new manner of thinking if mankind is to survive. Albert Einstein

The birth of this idea was fostered by several events. Frustration over recent ecological disasters and continuous reports of the devastation of our planet.
A realization that blogging possesses power far beyond decorative design, recipes and give backs that we all love and enjoy.
Don't blow it - good planets are hard to find - unknown
It is with these perceived stumbling blocks in our path, that we falter, making small attempts, while always pondering if we are able to do more, and if so, what?
The use of solar energy has not been opened up because the oil industry does not own the sun. Ralph Nader
Beginning July 1st and on the first day of each subsequent month, I hope to meet you here.
On blogs we share every topic under the sun, including recycling ideas. We will organize these ideas, and expand upon them in an inspiring and easily referenced site, once a month.
There are some ground rules I wish to get out of the way right up front.
Project Genesis will link visitors back to your blog; however, this is not the forum to exploit for give-away promotions, to garner Followers or to link to your commercial enterprises.
Not your original idea or photos? Provide credit where credit is due. I reserve the right to edit any participants. In other words play nice, please.
Still wondering what we'll be sharing? A few ideas without "leading" you into any one direction.
Perhaps you can explain how you've made recycling easier, more convenient.
Are you reducing your own or your family's dependence on fossil fuels?
How do you reduce the amount of garbage you contribute to the landfill?
What should we be aware of in regards to product packaging?
How do you teach the children in your life to respect their environment?
How do you influence those around you in your neighborhood and community to make changes for the planet?
Can you link others to responsible environmental programs in your area? In other words, link us
to cool people with great ideas.
Big ideas - Small ideas - Your ideas.
Awareness to affect change.
If you have any questions please email me. We'll figure this out together.
July 1st, the good stuff happens.
Create Change - The World Will Thank You
Blessings to you and all you love. Sea Witch
