a blog about being a lorax to the world. a lorax is anyone/anything that stands as an advocate. the lorax is literally a smallish, brownish creature from Dr. Seuss's The Lorax. He "speaks for the trees, for the trees have no tongues". the ending quote always resonates with my humanitarian efforts, "unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot; nothing's going to get better. its not."

Finding Green in Charlotte
being from the mountains, and specifically from Asheville, i love the outdoors. when i first moved to charlotte i didn't think i could ever live here because there's no real greenery...however, i recently was told about Four Mile Creek Greenway. as it's name says, its 4 miles of boardwalk along the creek. the perfect getaway to get back in touch with nature while still remaining close to the city. its the best of both worlds.
