A Plan Begins

The A&B Building was made entirely from driftwood, a testament to the company’s commitment to using natural materials instead of those made in factories. The building housed an enterprise that had been run by the same family for generations. Inside these walls they had researched ways to use natural resources while protecting the earth. Noticing the slow destruction of their planet, the current generation had determined that they needed to be more aggressive in the protection of their world. As the sun set, the family members gathered as they would at a family dinner. The matriach lead the meeting, assisted by her great-grandchild who had a doctorate in environmental biology. Not only biologists, though, were waiting to assist in the plan. Among the crowd were bankers, engineers and political scientists to mention a few. The plan would begin, though, with the well-renowned journalist.

What do you think the plan is?

  1. What a beautiful photo! Wouldn’t it be nice if there were natural buildings like that? I have no idea what plan they have, but I hope they will use the journalist to promote the idea to protect the earth.

    Well written as always Colline. 😀


  2. These guys remind me of the activist group in Tom Clancy’s “Rainbow Six”. I hope these people aren’t going to go to those lengths (wipe everyone out apart from the select few and start again)!


    1. Before I began blogging, I read many books on the art and how to get people to comment on your posts. The book that I learned a lot from was the one written by Seth Godin in which he suggests we ask our readers a question at the end of each post. I have found that many readers do try to answer the question – and if I do not ask one, their engagement is less.
