My New Monthly Column

I was recently invited to contribute a monthly column on One Green Planet - an "online destination for the ecologically ethical generation."

I considered this a huge honor; usually one would have to query, pitch and plead to get a foot in the door of such a widely read venue. After a couple of false starts--a "writing thing" that just seems to happen sometimes--I wrote my first submission about a subtle transformation that occurred shortly after I stopped eating animal products, which I called "Saving Gertie."

The editors added "The True Value of One Animal" to the title (don't ask me why), but they seemed to like the original piece just as I wrote it (which I found encouraging).

Please come back and comment here, if you have any remarks--I'd love to hear them!
