Lupa Greenwolf writes: I grew up in Missouri, where summers are hot, dry, and punctuated by strong thunderstorms. The muggy heat isn’t so stifling as in the deep South, but you’d better pay it respect and drink your water; I learned that the hard way after getting floored by heat exhaustion in the middle of softball practice one year. Look off to the southwest: if you see a bank of dark clouds approaching over the rise, make sure the car windows are closed and you have a flashlight handy in case the power goes off.

My parents always valued the sun over the rain. My dad cursed the clouds–still does to this day. As a young child I watched my parents carefully, sure they were the purveyors of truth. So I became a sun baby, reveling in long afternoons with my skin getting browner and my hair getting so blonde it was very nearly white. I glared at the weatherman on TV any time he predicted a low pressure line would sweep away the sun and bring a hem of clouds in its wake.

I had mixed feelings about the storms, myself.

How do people who genuinely love nature and want to help it end up being inadvertently dangerous to animals and their habitats? And how can we actually be better neighbors to our fellow species? Lupa Greenwolf discusses this over at Paths Through the Forests: http://www.patheos.com/blogs/pathsthroughtheforests/2015/07/28/our-deadly-lack-of-nature-literacy/

In her most recent post at Paths Through the Forests, Lupa Greenwolf asks whether pagans are burned out on environmentalism, if we can learn anything from social justice activists in the community, and where to go next: http://www.patheos.com/blogs/pathsthroughtheforests/2016/01/25/have-pagans-gotten-burned-out-on-environmentalism/

"Rua Lupa queries on what would we do if we were to align procreating celebration themes with how Nature normally does it - with the time frame of having your offspring in spring? Meaning human procreating themes in Late Summer, not spring...." http://www.patheos.com/blogs/pathsthroughtheforests/2015/04/28/cultural-quandaries-spring-sex/
