I am new to the community boards but I wanted to post a new topic here because I don't see anyone talking about it. Granted, I have not read through the whole site but either way, this is a good place to bring up my topic.
I heard about Last Hours of Ancient Sunlight in an ad during Thom's afternoon radio program. I am at a point in my life where I am trying to decide which way I'd like to go as far as education and eventually career. I have been having trouble deciding exactly what I wanted to do but knew I wanted to make a difference. I had a feeling that this book would help give me some direction and I was right. I was really inspired when reading about self sustaining communities and it got me thinking of all the people I know who are already doing DiY type things like brewing their own beer, or knitting or podcasting etc. I think I would like to take some classes in business, start with my own, I'm thinking of herbs and teas to start and then, when I have learned enough, start my own self sustaining community. I am thinking I might even like to start consulting for others who want to do the same. I'm not sure how I will pursue all of this so if anyone is doing something similar and would like to share ideas or resourses and of course hear opinions, I think this would be a great place to discuss it. Thank you!
