The desire to establish a sustainable culture may result from the wonder that we are alive and how the various elements of the complex system coordinate through surrounding and sustaining human life. This may have also resulted from Mary Oliver's “Spring,” as it asks how to love this world in its beauty and in spite of all the corresponding pains, violence, and other negative elements. As the author illustrates how their town may be characterized by a long history of racism, focus is shifted onto how human capacities may be developed so as to result in sustainable energy resources towards an improved economy. It is important to note that sustainability is not only about environment, economy, social issues, and social justice, as sustainability encompasses so much more.
