Eva left college with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the University of Massachusetts (Amherst) but spent most of her working life in Customer Service, Faculty Support and Operations Coordination in retail (Sears), academia (MIT) and network operations (BBN-now GTE). After moving to Colorado in 1991, she went back to her art roots and ran an artists' services company (A Slice of Time) for 10 years. Her background gives her a strong interest in how large organizations and governments operate effectively (or don't). She's an avid (some say compulsive) gardener and these two interests are merging in the book she's working on at present, "A Gardener's Guide to Politics." She's also been a book reviewer at A Book a Day Reviews since 2011. Watch for Eva's book, to be published by Bent Briar.
A Gardener's Guide to Politics
A Gardener's Guide to Politics is a look at our current political climate from the unusual perspective of gardening. The gardener (or the government) makes decisions and takes action based on the environment he must grow in, the conditions inherited from nature, changing micro-climate, predators and parasites that threaten success, and the needs of the crops and flowers he wants to cultivate. There are far more parallels than you might expect. For those who feel politics is unrelated to their daily lives and the natural order, this book is a thoughtful look at just how little our behaviors differ from those in the natural world around us, in life, in gardening, and in politics.
