Lily’s Footprint

Ancient footprints immortalize beings who lived here 100,000 years ago and we’re captivated, wondering about the lives of those who walked before us. They were seeking sustenance within a walking distance, perhaps a trek, but always on foot.

Now it’s the carbon footprint that interests us, to once again sustain ourselves on what is nearby whenever possible, to diminish the impact of our being here. Lily is the baby child in our village. Her presence on this earth, along with all children, gives energy and passion to the cause of our living ‘within a walking distance’ so to speak.
