Urgent Evoke

A crash course in changing the world.

SPARK stands out as my favourite evoke power.

It stands on its own. It precedes action, it craves initiative and excites the imagination and it begs on its knees and calls for action.

Spark is the time, it’s the place, it’s the motion – and spark is the way I am feeling! (Sorry, couldn’t resist!).

Spark gets the heart pumping and the adrenaline rushing. Spark is what gives you that great creative vision and leads you to a dramatic insight into sustainability and resourcefulness. Spark makes you leap out of the bath and shout EUREKA!

Spark is what you need to persuade powerful people and the ma****. Martin Luther King had vision, he was a courageous problem-solver, he wanted a sustainable way of living for all people but without a SPARK, he could never have got up in front of everyone and pledged his dream.

There are thousands of Martin Luthers out there, people like us - but we are all just voices in a crowd without a little flicker of spark. MLK said what everyone else was thinking, but HE had the spark and drive to take it forward.

Sparks seek ignitable material. If a spark sees an opportunity: flash and BOOM…

The lesson that spark teaches us is this: We don’t have to actually BE the fire, we don’t need to change the world, but we DO need to be the spark that starts the inferno.

If spark is successful, it will cease to be a spark - it will ignite a fire, a dramatic frenzy of warmth and sometimes danger, but always excitement. Sparks are moments, flickers that are so powerful – and always more than the sum of its parts.

Spark gets my vote every time..

Running with your metaphor a little further - once a spark is successful, and the inferno is in full raging force, it will create other sparks on the edges - inspired sparks that can go on to create their own infernos.

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***tances can never exceed 31 % protein. In addition the Stinging Nettle consists…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.
