@djr013:matrix.orgdjr013 @foxygreen:feneas.org: as far as who will carry on the business when you can't, the most viable path will most likely be to find an existing worker coop or utility coop in the field who are looking to expand. 16:08:47

Thanks that's a great idea. I've been working to place my assets in trust both for privacy sake while I'm still able, and to hopefully establish a legacy. It would be nice if the successor beneficiary were someone who could carry on the business of the trust.

* @foxygreen No problem, technically I'm just a mod. But I try to help whenever and wherever possible. You've done a lot of great things and I definitely can relate to chronic illnesses. One of the best things I could tell you is that ... there is no balance sheet. We all strive to do as much good as possible during our time here and as long as you are doing that I wouldn't worry too much about the things you can't do. There was a good book on it I read called 'Ecopiety' it talks about how we've been taught to keep a mental tally to offset or assuage our guilt. But that's not really how things work. I highly recommend reading it if you can find a copy. I guess what I'm saying is, love your cats and do what you can for the environment when you can. For me, that means growing a small garden, volunteering online, and sharing knowledge when I can. As far as legacies are concerned? Writing a book on how you have made your industry more efficient with tips and suggestions for other companies would be amazing. A legacy is what people remember about you. The good things, the bad, what you've shared, etc. and generally it's the little things. Not the big ones that make the biggest impact.
Will look for that, when there's an open indy bookstore around here, since I don't shop online on principle. Sound advice, I don't believe in a balance sheet either, but it's hard not to see the world through the lens of "capital" sometimes.

A solarpunk study group like you mentioned at the end could be fertile. I always like to hear what people are reading, esp offline. Is there anything that resembles a solarpunk 'journal'?
