In 2005, I took a college elective that explored sustainability. It was interesting but left me frustrated. I took a break from school to raise my children and returned to finish my degree. Ten years later, I took the elective again, not knowing it was the updated course. I was still frustrated and it still felt like sustainability was an unknown future that we could all hope to build together. I had an intuitive feeling that I know sustainability and through my senior project I defined sustainable traditional values that continue to guide us today. My thoughts on sustainability are optimistic and my passion is to share what I've learned. Demarus | By the Sea is my chance to continue to expand on my senior project. If you know of a career where I can talk about sustainable worldview, let me know! I'd also consider knitting or weaving for a living.
