Brave new world

Lately I came across an article about a (materially)  successful man with a disability. He links the global game-changing Pandemic reaction of learning-/working-from-home[mfn]eg., there have been people asking for remote work for decades.

I have posted before about one of many attitudes conducive to manifesting visionary, vital, vibrant and viable[mfn]Park Ecovillage, Findhorn Community Purpose statement 2019[/mfn] -- ie. innovative&regenerative -- community life. That was tv-inspired, as I am an audio-visual kind of guy. Lately I came across another brilliant tv-series that reinvigorated puerile notions

Pursuit of happiness

245 years ago, in order to get 13 different groups[mfn]founded for a diverse range of reasons, from the pursuit of fortunes to the desire to create havens from persecution and model societies, and had differing systems of governance,[/mfn] to form a more perfect union -- just, tranquil&safe, prosperous, and free

Green(house) living

Soaring house prices, energy prices and food prices. Questionable building construction quality (except of course in PETs affordable units ), questionable energy availability and supermarket food quality, and v.questionable economic sanity. What to do? There's talk in the community about studying affordable housing&energy together in one project: ie. living in

Fossil2new Fuel

How're things moving with you? Still constrained by the yoke of FF (fossil fuel) dependency? Sure you are; we all are somewhere along our life's value-chain. So, how to change this -- to become a more sustainable energy user? A pragmatic, real-change-method? Offsetting perhaps? And/Or you could consider If

"Classical" businesses are starting to talk more about the opportunity profit in "culture" over that of "cost accounting". 2blogs ago we looked at the idea of "true cost" calculation.[mfn][/mfn] Even the Park Ecovillage at Findhorn is studying the possibilities of larger scale food&energy production, in line with their enlightened "0carbon30"

Greater fool

In You We Trust: hope you had a happy USIndependence Day! Change. We're being bombarded with opportunities to so do because global millennial environments are proving to be utterly VUCA. But what's happening with the much vaunted "new-normal?" OK sure, things aren't the same as yesterday (the passing river &c.),

Elevate, in action

Why? Why? Why? Are we there yet? Recurrent travel themes for children and adults. Young&old live in a puzzle. And to counter unsatisfactory official guidance around what life is really about, we adults comfort ourselves with (depressed) acquiescence and/or distractions -- faking a semblance of control ... Why not repeat

Hope of humankind

Which hope? "Community" or Hegel's "self as the will-to-power" in conflict with another's "will-to-power?" Individualism or communalism? A poignant discussion point in today's world: on the stages of the Ukraine & N.Korea, of ecovillages, family homes -- wherever individuals, desiring to gather together, choose to continue/slow down or even stop
