Celebrate Life, the Wright Scoop
In honor of January as national "celebrate life month," Glen Allen, VA-based The Wright Scoop – consultant, lecturer, & wordsmith Sylvia Hoehns Wright urges all to celebrate a life of CARE – create a legacy of conservation, advocacy, recovery and eco-efficiency.
Celebrate Life, the influence of legacy -
Although three generations removed from a Quaker life-style, Wright credits this heritage as the catalyst for her eco-caretaker perspective. “Initially,” she says, “media referred to my eco-commitment as the by-product of a naturalist. Then, when I contributed to state-wide Virginia publications, I was recognized as eco-wise. After speaking and publishing in the DC area, my work was referred to as eco-savvy. And, it was when I participated as a speaker for the Green Festival held in DC that I picked up the label, eco-chic. Nevertheless, regardless of media term, as long as people hear my message – become people who celebrate a life of CARE, I’m happy.”
In her book – Eco-legacy, a millennium woman’s heritage, Wright invites readers to walk on a path worn smooth by generational expectation. Savor nostalgia for the places that are near and dear to heart, recall family traditions and more importantly, celebrate life because heritage is more than a possession, it is a gift: the birthright of our children.
