In keeping with the ecological theme for this week, the siglines here will all have an environmental or ecological connection (though it may not be obvious at first glance!). Be good to Mother Earth - she's been good to us!
Picture a bright blue ball just spinnin' spinnin' free. It's dizzy with possibility.

This is the fourth in a series of siglines diaries; the first collected random ones, the second ones that make you laugh, and the third quotes from MLK and Gandhi.. This one is appearing early because we are traveling to California today to tie up loose ends after my father-in-law's death in mid-May.
| If you are interested in environmental issues, please join DK GreenRoots, a new environmental advocacy group created by Meteor Blades and Patriot Daily. DK GreenRoots comprises bloggers at Daily Kos and eco-advocates from other sites. We focus on a broad range of issues and are always open to new ones.
Over the coming weeks and months, DK Greenroots will initiate a variety of environmental projects, some political and some having nothing directly to do with politics at all.
Some projects may involve the creation of eco working groups that can be used for a variety of actions, including implementing political action or drafting proposed legislation. We are in exciting times now because for the first time in decades, significant environmental legislation will be passed by Congress. It is far easier to achieve real change if our proposal is on the table rather than fighting rearguard actions.
We alert each other to important eco-stories in the mainstream media and on the Internet, promote bloggers at one site to readers at other sites, connect bloggers of similar interests to each other and discuss crucial eco-issues.
Come help us put these projects together. Bring ideas of your own. There is no limit on what we can accomplish together.
