There’s a metaphor I like to use when talking to fellow activists. I ask them to imagine two fires. The first is a campfire in an opening in the woods.

  1. Thanks so much for sharing Zoe’s post, D.A. The campfire/forest fire story is one she always tells at our student residency, and it’s always a favorite. Such a powerful metaphor!

  2. Hello Marsha, I am happy to share Zoe’s post. It is such a fine line between helping people recognize that we have to make a change for our planet, and just forcing facts in their face. I am just getting my teaching credential (art), and I would like to know more about her program!
    Many thanks for all your work,
    D.A. Hartley
