IMAGINE1 - 10 yrs vs Tomorrow...Evoking peacemakers in every school

This is a task that is a continual work in progress for me. I have been putting off writing this 'where will I be ten years from now' and then stopped to think: rather than force myself to write this, why not reflect on why this seems difficult? So here goes...

I know the power of imagination. I have been blessed and privileged enough to imagine something and then watch it, near instantaneously, manifest itself into creation, usually before I consider myself 'ready'. As a result I try… Continue

Mother Teresa via Shakwei

"Do we need to be many (how many?) to make an impact? If something does not happen within 12 weeks does it mean it will never happen? This is one truth I have learned from one woman who made a difference - The success of love is in the loving - it is not in the result of loving. Of course it is natural in love to want the best for the other person, but whether it turns out that way or not does not determine the value of what we have done" - Mother Teresa… Continue

IMAGINE2 - socializing and simmering

I'm having a family style late lunch with 12 of my good friends. In order to be invited to the dinner, they each had to bring three items to share, unprepared, and seeds to share. When we all arrived we decided what we would make from the plethora of locally grown ingredients. We spent hours, cooking, connecting, and enjoying the meal together. All the food was rich with flavor and nutrients. It was a feast of the senses, and a feast of friendship. We savored and celebrated every spice,… Continue

My Hero

(I'm bending the rules here slightly and choosing two heroes)

As I write this today, two things come up for me.

1) Heroism is in the eye of the beholder.

2) I feel that we should allow ourselves permission to see ordinary people as heroes more.

Today, I had many heroes, some who intentionally and purposefully take on a leadership role, and some who had no idea how they impacted me today. To illustrate my point I thought I'd list a few:

- My dance instructor who… Continue

My Secret: Periphreal Vision

My Secret: Peripheral vision; keep a look out for other challenges

or new solutions all the time.

When you accept everything around you as a resource, as a learning opportunity, and as reminder of inter-connectivity, then you open yourself up to new ways of seeing, new ways of communicating, new ways of understanding, new ways of empathizing, new ways of creating and new ways of being.

When you see the world around you as an ally and stay open to all the… Continue

Fourth of July on the Lake

This past weekend was the annual celebration at the lake house in Connecticut. It is amazing that the lake is still so clear and beautiful after all these years. The watershed association has done a wonderful job protecting these waters from the damaging effects of development.The wood grill was finally ready to cook on, so we didn't miss the propane tank fueled grill anymore. The food actually tasted fresher than in the past and was easy to keep fueled.Dad was very proud of the solar hybrid…See More

FutureToday is 2020/1/1. It is just like yesterday. The war is still continuing. It has started since 2010. In 2010, that year was a horrible year. Almost every energy ran out. Every country’s governments were crushed down at the same time. There were riots everywhere. All of the big company’s bosses were killed xdeadx in the riots. Troops fought each other everywhere. Food was bought up xawayx at once. There were no more food supplies in any shops. The economy was all crushed down. All the…See More

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.
