Downtown Dame: a Raleigh blog

Celebrate your daily planet

Earth Day is today but I started celebrating yesterday when I bought a microwave on craigslist. I find this buying practice to be very rewarding because not only do I keep one more item from the landfill, even if just postponing it, but it’s an opportunity to connect with my community. I always get something out of it that I didn’t expect, which is now what I expect and makes the experience fun. Yesterday, I found a new road in a neighborhood I thought I had all figured out, the house was my favorite sweet blue (smile), and though the seller had not been sleeping well for what seemed to be several nights, he was kind and asked for less than it was listed for. Yeah, no big deal, but the point is it shifted my perspective ever so slightly. And that, to me, is what makes living together on this planet so interesting.


The Daily Planet is finished! Bus it for free (CAT or R-LINE) to the Grand Opening of the Nature Research Center.

Music Fest on Hillsborough Street (4pm – 1am)
