"As a child I heard many, many stories similar to this. It seems to me that story telling is not so much dying as being transformed. Many children (in Kenya) no longer just hear these stories from parents / grand parents, but they are also on…"

Garden in a sack

"This is a very good idea. Addition: First: If you really want to make it portable, then don't make it too heavy. Start with thinking about a weight of each mini-garden sack of about 20 kg. Humans can lift such weights, when heavier we might…"

UE Manifesto

In thinking of this Quest, my first question to myself was "What is a Manifesto?" Although I use this word frequently, I was not able to provide a simple answer. Intensive research (read Wiki) indicatethat a manifesto is simply a paper written to explain what you are all about, why you believe what you believe, what your plans are, your purpose, direction and statement of life. This sounded pretty heavy to me but here goes nothing ...

Should I still list you as onboard with the Gratitude Gardens? We'd love to have you...

Great status. Reminds me of the quote by Eleanor Roosevelt that, "No one can make you feel inferior without your consent."

When I was in Peru I made a contact with the Gates Foundation and we're looking at applying for a huge grant to make the Gratitude Gardens a possibility. We need as many participants from Africa and Southeast Asia as possible, and it seems like from your posts you might be interested. Friend me so we can message more about it, I'd love to have you on the team.

public servants

The exchange works directly for state and public workers and servants. It gives them credit in exchange for the amount of public work they contribute to the community. The more constructive they are based off a base rate the more credit they recieve.

Where I will be in ten years.

Ten years from now I will be in a political job assisting with people in the midlands of South Carolina particularly the rural working class and farmers. As the class of people that feed the nation I find that it is imperative that we assist with making sure they produce as much food as possible. I would like to support local scientists as well that are leading in research on how to produce food more efficiently. I will also be participating in missions to foreign countries to help people with…See More

Changes to Charleston

Charleston has an exhibit opening up with pieces of old african art and sculptures. Every piece of art, quilts and dolls, is beautiful and engaging in their own way… Many of them address the mermaids that followed the slave ships to return the souls…
