Urgent Evoke

A crash course in changing the world.

"We are going to flood the grid tonight, baby! Flood. The. Grid!" my husband said.

"Oh, it won't even seem like a psi collector," I said. "This is a brand new floor, wood over the collector plates. Looks like a regular old-fashioned wood dance floor. Like swing dancing in Philly in the '90s!"

"Whatever. We're gonna flood that grid and then we're gonna break that new floor in half. The routers in the neighborhood will all burst from the surge. I say we hit the balance mark by 10 p.m."

"Oh, you think we're going to dance that much? You really think the energy we spent to put on the party will be generated in full before the night is half-over?"

He took me in his arms. "Yes, yes I do."

It was my 50th birthday. The bash planned in detail by my loving husband and children was promising to be a big one. The ballroom was booked two years earlier. The organic caterer, who composts all the used party supplies, was the newest addition, found just two months ago. "Everything will be local" they promised. They got the job.

The food was almost an afterthought, because tonight, we dance. The focus is on Movement. Traveling through air, space, time. Dance, on a floor that feels our energy and feeds it back to the power grid that sustains us, a feedback loop of poetic proportions.

What is dance but a soulful testament to surviving - and thriving -for 50 years? What is energy if not light? Tonight we have and make both. Tonight my children will dance with me. My husband will dance with us. The sounds from the speakers hitting us and turning our energy into light, our own personal versions of sonoluminescence.

I love your vision - and I, for one, am a big proponent of dance floor energy systems!

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

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.
