“As a modern sorcerer of sustainability it is fitting that I travel upon wind and sunlight.”
As a sorcerer I continue the ancient tradition of traveling by magic. According to historic accounts, ancient sorcerers might ride upon hippogriffs, the offspring of the mythical griffin and a mare. Flying brooms and magic carpets were well-known as methods of transport for witches and other wonder workers far before Harry Potter and Disney’s Aladdin.
As a modern sorcerer of sustainability it is fitting that I travel upon wind and sunlight. In contrast to the wizards of old my transport is of a new sort for a new age: a Nissan Leaf. Fueled by the solar energy generated on our roof, and the grid-based electricity which Connecticut allows us to source from the zero-carbon generators of solar and wind, the Leaf does not pollute or contribute to climate change. This fully electric vehicle may not have the range of a gasoline vehicle or even the gas-electric Prius which I have so enjoyed owning. But then again, I don’t imagine the hippogriffs of ancient sorcerers could fly forever either.
