"I got a lot out of your thoughtful post, Forrest, but did you mean cooperative where you said corporate? One of the problems, it seems to me, is that we (including me) become so enamored with our great ideas that we are reluctant to let go of them.…"

THE POWER OF ONE

One woman acted and through 12 years of…See More

THE NECESSITY OF COLLECTIVE ACTION IN THE TRANSITION MOVEMENT

COLLECTIVE ACTION: A MISSING ELEMENT IN THE GREEN MOVEMENT These Amish farmers, working in Lancaster, Pa, are following a centuries old tradition of collective action going back to Western European roots. The good news is this picture was taken last year. The bad news is that 99% of the action of barn raising or home construction or any kind of neighborhood construction is done by “paid experts.” The individual owner of the building lacks emotional and spiritual ownership because he is excluded…See More

THE SHADOW OF MONEY : WILL YOUR FAMILY FUND YOUR TRANSITION COMMUNITY?

THE SHADOW OF MONEYIn highly stressed economic times, the challenge of funding your local transition project out of your family budget generates more stress within the family unit. I've talked with several transiton folk who have just taken the path of least resistance and used their own money to rent space, pay speakers, etc. But after doing that for a year or more and dishing out over one thousand dollars or more, that family wallet and checkbook approach does not seem workable for the long…See More

Flowers sing silent hallelujahs

Kaleidoscopes of color and scent



Tall grass prairie of our mother

Whispers her lullabies



Monarch butterflies traverse continents

Going home, gathering in one tree…
