Yes, that is what I feel at the moment. Yesterday I found that there was another story about me, this time in the Melbourne Herald Sun newspaper. This article was totally unexpected. Read the article titled “Taking the green path“. Here is the first paragraph;
“BEFORE Gavin and his family went green, they were like most people today, totally unaware of their actions upon the fragile planet, never giving a second thought about how much energy they used.”
It is hard to describe how I am feeling at the moment. All this attention, but do you know what? I still find it hard to believe that from the humble beginnings of my journey, this is where I have ended up. Newspaper, Television, Magazines, Speaking appearances, etc. Where will it go from here?
Never in my wildest dreams that in 4 short years would people other than my blog readers, want to know more about sustainable living. It seems like a big, green, ground swell is happening. Where ever I turn, people want to know how to grow their own vegetables, cut their consumption, and live a bit more frugally.
It certainly brings joy and hope to this ordinary Australian bloke’s heart.
All I wish is that it continues to grow and that instead of being in the minority, that the way I live becomes part of the mainstream. Here is to dreams coming true! As I said about a year into my journey, ‘if you build it, they will come”. Corny, I know, but that is exactly what has happened.
