The workings of the human heart are the profoundest mystery of the universe. One moment they make us despair of our kind, and the next we see in them the reflection of the divine image.
--Charles W. Chestnut
A billion heartbeats. As measured in heartbeats, it seems that every animal on the planet lives roughly the same lifespan, about a billion heartbeats. Usually, the smaller animals, whose hearts beat faster, have shorter “real-time” lives. But measured in this Physiologic Time, basically using a heartbeat clock, all life spans are roughly the same. When we measure life in heartbeats or breaths it reveals how deeply subjective time is.

When GreenStar recently upgraded the lighting and ceiling tiles at the West-End Store those involved took into account the opportunity to make a difference and implement savings at the same time.
Walk into the store and look up. There are now 35 fixtures for lighting that each use 32 watts of electricity whereas there were 52 fixtures at 60 watts each. That is a savings of 2000 watts, almost ⅔ of our electric use for lighting. The ceiling was also dropped several feet and the Co-op now heats and cools 6,796 less cubic feet of air space.

GreenStar didnt plan to have a special, event-packed day that celebrated local, its just what we do. It happened naturally.
