I really enjoyed reading Meddows for this week. I think there is a lot elements and systems intertwined in our everyday lives that we take for granted, and that become invisible, so that we don’t question it. I appreciated the way Meadows breaks down the elements of simple systems such as drinking coffee to wake up. It allows for such systems, such as sitting in a classroom or writing a paper to be seen through a bigger picture. Thinking in systems can allow for the smallest system of personal interactions to be looked at, all the way up to the largest system the ‘bigger picture’ to be seen. It also allowed for the complexity of the system that is our class goal, of working with LCCS, the Baykeepers, and our demonstration at Liberty State Park to be seen, as well as personal implications, but also larger implications that are brought up in terms of education, environmental, political, and social issues.
