A few months ago I received a call from Elyse Umlauf, a writer and editor working from Chicago. In addition to her freelance work, she's written a book about the design and improvement of commercial spaces.
It took a moment for all my synapses to connect around the reason for her call. Follow me - this Chicago writer found me through my blog in Santa Barbara, because she needed to interview me for a story regarding sustainable landscaping in California for a Los Angeles realtor - whew!
Thanks to the magic of electronic communications, the information traveled about 6000 miles from Chi-town to the left coast, back to the Great Lakes, and on to LA, all without leaving a discernable carbon foot print (Elyse gained a few brownie points from Al Gore in the process). How green is that? I was glad to oblige and pontificated in my usual style. I even received a link from her article to my TV show and this blog.
Thought you might want to check it out. I think it's mighty cool.
