There’s Something In The Air

When you’ve made the decision to, oh, say, buy a new car, and as you consider a specific model, what do you suddenly see everywhere? That model car. At least that’s how it seems to have occurred for me. I know that there’s not a sudden increase in those cars sent to follow my every move and ensure they’re consistently in my thoughts, but nevertheless, i simply see, or ‘consiously’ see, more.

And that’s what I’m starting to notice in the trends of addressing ecological and energy issues. I’m seeing far more awareness then I recall seeing before I myself started to become more educated.

I hope it’s not just another case of seeing more of what you’re more aware of, but that’s it’s an actual honest trend. In the news, on the roads and even in an internal communications meeting at work today, the environment came up more then once. Damn, that felt good. And I don’t recall it being raised in the past, regardless of my own ignorance at the time.

Perhaps our collective awareness and intention to make a change is starting to snowball.

  1. Nice “snowball” reference ;-)

  2. Just for reader’s clarity, the ‘snowball’ reference arose in today’s comm meeting regarding the ‘word of mouth’ growth of Mac Sales. We’ve gone from ‘Beleagured’ to ‘Snowball Effect’ in the press. Whoo hoo!

  3. Dear Master Geoff Mitchell,

    Winter will soon be here.

    But why wait for mother nature to tell YOU when you can create the first snowball?

    Now, you can thrown a 100% genuine artificial snowball? Yes, the company that brought you products you love, like simulated candy corn, brings the fun of snowball watching* to your home all year long!

    The Simu-snowball is perfect for the times when a real snowball just won’t work. Such as adorning the candle on the hall table.
    Or when, in July, you go to the freezer to find the snowball you’ve been saving since January.

    Our artificial snowballs have been designed to look and seem as though they are 100% authentic. They are also guaranteed not to melt in your hand.

    Order yours today!

    * The Simu-snowball is for decorative use only. It is not designed to be thrown, caught, kicked, licked, placed in mouth, or shoved down brother’s pants. Simu-snowball will explode if placed too close to sources of heat, such as an open flame.

    The Simu-snowball is environmentall safe. As long as it doesn’t break, chip, flake, melt, touch the ground or human skin. We don’t know about animal skin because PETA took away all of our lab animals.
