My Story of Motivation

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.…

All Hallow's Eve, 2020

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

An Elder Speaks... The Ecology of Heart

"As I have journeyed here upon the Earth in this lifetime, I have seen the many developments our society has made, first as we were making great gains in our

scientific understanding of Nature while consuming it, and then, gradually,

putting our knowledge and technologies to use as we regenerated the land and

waters while…

Preparedness through Outrage... and Diversity of Information?

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,

possible death and a more severe outbreak provides important guidelines

for journalists covering this story."



And this one, from "Covering Risk":



"The most powerful way to get people to take precautions is to mobilize and… Continue

Resourcing the Herbalists

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

Passive Hydro Refridgeration

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

Nutritional Security: Tech or Folk?

I decided to look further into the following article on WomenWatch:



Empowering Women through Food Security



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

Spice Trade Economics

The currency for my alterative economic transaction this week is... Blackberry Leaves * * *



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

Harvesting a Future



April 2, 2020





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

Gift Economy

Gift economies have the adaptability, resilience, and accessibility to be the economy of choice for the world.



"In the social sciences, a gift economy (or gift culture) is a society where valuable goods and services are regularly given without any

explicit agreement for immediate or future rewards (i.e. no formal quid quo pro exists).… Continue

A Hero, A Guide

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

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

Stinging Nettle

In this blog post I will focus on a plant that is abundant in our nature, and which is immensely nutritious. It's of course the Stinging Nettle. Let's start with the chemical constituents of this plant:37 % Non-Nitrogen-Extracts19 - 29 % Ash9 - 21 % Fiber4 % Fat22 % ProteinOnce the leaves are drid, their protein content can reach an astounding 40 %, which is much higher than beef, which even under the best of circ**stances can never exceed 31 % protein. In addition the Stinging Nettle consists…See More

Future

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.
