It has been interesting helping with the Public Power Initiative, feeling a sense of nationalism, or at least "countyism." Going to parades and Fourth of July fireworks shows.
Last week, had a talk with Michael about nationalism, and how it's not necessarily a bad thing, if the spirit is good. If the competition is toward a good goal, like sustainability and human rights. Say, hey, we can compete as a county for the most efficient and sustainable electrical infrastructure. We can compete to drive down the factors that cause homelessness and unemployment... Sort of along those lines, we were thinking.
Anyway, here are some striking photos of a bright summer day at Burfoot:
