I love this amazing and awe-inspiring world and I'd like to see it stick around. While I have great faith (or the faith of a mustard seed if you prefer) in the earth's resilience, I still believe we're called to steward our bountiful and beautiful natural inheritance with mindfulness and care. To that end I write about our times on issues like energy, consumption, society, culture, religion, family, and politics with an aim to tell the truth about who we are as I see it, how we can improve, and what we can achieve.

Virginia exists as a touchstone for all of America. We began here as the first colony. We bear the glories of the enlightenment, and the shadows of a fraught history.
