Green Grows Up: The Many Faces of Today's LEED Homes

Green Grows Up: The Many Faces of Today's LEED Homes | Poetry | Scoop.it

What does a LEED certified home look like architecturally? And how does it compare with what a sustainable house should look like? 

A LEED certified home, as you’re about to see from the photos in this article, can pretty much look like anything you want. The strength (and weakness) of the LEED for Homes rating system is that it attempts to reconcile sustainable building objectives with the current reality of the green building market and the range of options that are realistically available to the majority of people...

BRIDGETON, N.J. -- For more than a year, inmates at the Cumberland County Jail in Bridgeton have channeled their inner emotions into an unorthodox but therapeutic form: poetry.

Under the guidance of a retired English teacher, roughly 60 incarcerated men and women who make up two work groups have turned to the written word as a way to express a wide range of feelings — including regret and sorrow.

"It's something that occupies their time in a positive way, to take their mind away from boredom," Warden Bob Balicki told The Daily Journal of Vineland (http://bit.ly/1cIg4fE). "It helps them escape."

With work sessions led by instructor Dave Murphy, the inmates are able to let their minds drift away from the confines of concrete cells to the most surreal parts of their imaginations.

"It seems to be a very valuable outlet for them," Murphy noted. "I was stunned by the energy, the emotion and the power of some of the poetry. It has changed them."

Murphy taught high school English for 25 years and currently teaches at both Atlantic Cape Community College and Temple University. He volunteered to read poetry as well as help inmates with their own writing.

"They've been very enthusiastic," Murphy said. "They've done some bad things, but they've been genuine with me. It's a way of making up for wrongs for them."

Inmate Jose Heredia listened as Murphy read aloud Heredia's poem, "A New Chance To Live." The inmate said writing the poem — which showed a longing for redemption and a second chance — helped him connect with his emotions.

"It's good to just open up and share my feelings."

The roughly two-hour sessions Murphy has with each group generally entail readings of selected prison-themed poems — works with which he believes the inmates can connect — as well as work-shopping their writing.
