I just realized the full story of my Motivation Quest does not appear, so here it.
The early morning call of the neighborhood song birds has me alert to the first inklings of light, and I am out of bed.
Waking up my body and calling out some creature noises myself, I step outside for a fresh breath, and to gaze at the radiance of the rising sun.…

The neighbourhood gathers at dusk in the apple orchard, where a large bonfire of fallen branches from the surrounding forest has been put together. The fire hazard at other times of the year means that it is very important to clean this debris wood up. As well, the bonfire has been placed in a large pit, allowing us to also place large metal barrels in the fire, in which we can pyrolize some of this debris wood for use as Biochar
in the… Continue

So, I am going to look at a couple of different statements. This is one from "How do People React in a Pandemic?":
"If it is a pandemic wave causing mild disease and low
death rates, research on people’s reactions to the risk of infection,

2020 is here, and the Northern Rivers Flu has moved out of the rural areas in to the Greater Vancouver Region. I am communicating, coordinating, and collaborating with the Herbalist community of the City, the Province, and the Country.
In its first days of development, the NRF was conventionally treated in Canada's Northern rural areas with anti-virals and vaccines. The growing number of holistic clinics and community herbalists though were also taking part, using knowledge about… Continue

As I have been considering the source of energy to be used as my alternative for this mission, my attention was continually drawn to the creek that runs behind the house, as the most accessible and formidable source of energy available. How to use it, though...
I have taken a plastic jug, that I filled mostly with gravel, and placed inside a herbal oil infusion that I have made, and that requires refridgeration. I placed it at the side of the creek, where water runs and not too… Continue

The text there is a short statement about the relationship between this year's theme for International Women's Day, "Equal rights, equal opportunities: progress for all," and the need to improve the nutritional security of women, especially that of pregnant mothers.… Continue

Along with considerations as to what I would do for this mission, I had also been considering how I would make a contribution to the newly begun 'Evolver Social Movement', which has birthed out of two web-projects I am involved with, the 'Reality Sandwich' on-line magazine and the 'Evolver' social networking site.
I am without a credit card, and so realized that I needed to be paying… Continue

Yesterday, our kayak caravan arrived at a beach on
the Pacific Northwest coastline, where 3 years before, we grew a
beneficial microbial culture in a near-by harbour, with the intention of
remediating the toxicity of xeno-estrogens that had built up from the
superfluous plastics in the Pacific Ocean.
Hoping to be able and
harvest the abundant herring roe now collecting on the coastal seaweed,
we use an assortment of sensory,… Continue

I am choosing Marko Pogacnik
as my Hero to follow, and perhaps to connect with.
I first became aware of Marko early in my 'journey', when I first left University and the desire to be a Church Minister to learn more about Organic Farming and Sustainable Living. I was staying at a homestead on the Dorrigo Plaeteau in Australia, where I was helping to install some backyard irrigation, supplying my helping hands in the kitchen,… Continue
