Sustainability, Travel, Scrapbook Pages and Podcasting

I have been writing posts lately about sustainability. It's scary to think that some human beings do not care. I also feel that some people feel the decline of humankind is inevitable, so think - let's make a profit while we can and enjoy ourselves. On the other hand, I do see that many businesses and individuals believe a sustainable approach makes sense both for the world and for the bottom line.
Sustainable creative approaches interest me. I just got a badge in an introductory class in sustainable design and am think of studying this more. One of my concerns is the health of our local environments. I took a class for EcoDistricts certification but have had little time to study to take the exam. It's on the list. I'm also considering attending another GreenBiz sponsored meeting. I learned a lot at the last one I attended.
Right now I'm planning a trip to San Diego and another to Great Britain and Ireland. Travel is stressful and exhausting many times but the thrill of learning and experiencing new things more than makes up for the inconveniences. I'm trusting myself to a good tour company in Europe to make the most of the brief time I can spend. One of these days I'll take a semester abroad and actually learn about an area in depth while I study art.
Of course, the experiences and photos should make for some exciting scrapbook pages as I recount the stories of my travel. I am also considering taking my podcast on the road and talking about my trip. It's a creative approach to my podcast, introducing travelogues.
Speaking of scrapbooking, I've used my travels to inspire some of my recent page design stories. Here's one from my recent visit to Arizona.


And another from my visit to Coit Tower in San Francisco.


Do visit A Creative Approach Podcast and listen to some fun episodes including this latest one with Elena Lai Etcheverry.
