3 more to go!

Yesterday I submitted my dissertation proposal to my committee. The proposal is the 25-page document that outlines the dissertation and explains why the topic (land use and biofuels) is important. In just over a week, I will present the proposal orally to the committee and to my peers. I have 30 minutes to present; the committee has an hour and a half to ask questions. Hopefully, we both win in the end.

I want to emerge
a scholar of sustainability,
not just
I want to
bridge the divide
between scholar
and activist,
fill the gaps between
theory and practice.
I want to connect the dots
between greens and blues and browns
Systematically reconnecting people to the earth
earth to our ancestors
ancestors to everything.
I want to design simply,
invoke elegance mathematically,
uniting concept and form.
I want,
I want,
I want.
I just want
