IN THE FULLNESS OF TIME
In the fullness of time, an underground River of longing, hurt and care began to move upward from the rocks below.
The great waters of life, holding all the tears of the female and male ancestors, moved upwards through the dry soil reaching for the light of the sun and fresh air.
In the fullness of time, the long hidden River of Life came to the surface -- breaking through to the sunlight of a… Continue

ONE POWERFUL SEED
Kipp Nash likes to tell his students in the Community Roots Boulder Apprenticeship program that “a seed is powerful, even in darkness and in the cold. It has a vital energy and powerful life force.”
But those of us that have worked with him and seen him sow those broccoli and lettuce seeds in plastic trays for germinating and sprouting in the near future with the deftness and precision of a surgeon’s hand, know… Continue

HEEDING THE FIERCE URGENCY OF THE NOW
We’ve all watched in amazement as the TV camera shows us a 500 room Vegas hotel being totally “dropped” in less than 45 seconds, -- or a sports stadium built of seemingly immovable concrete and steel structure disappearing before our eyes. High powered but very small explosive detonators are placed at key points on the foundation of the structure and at various other “stress points” of the old hotel or sports… Continue

Research shows that the transition to college, with its inherent pressures and changes, can increase the likelihood of eating disorders in young adults. While college students are empowered with newfound independence, this freedom can also trigger unhealthy and dangerous behaviors.
In the past year, Eating Recovery Center (www.EatingRecoveryCenter.com
), a behavioral… Continue

COLLECTIVE LIVING: AN IDEA WHOSE TIME HAS COME
During the Dark Ages in Europe, from the fifth through the sixteenth century, monastic traditions of Egypt spread throughout Europe, took root and flourished. Thousands of monasteries of men and women, unified by Catholic theology, became the great and only significant repositories of the history and culture of Western Europe. Despite social disintegration and turbulence outside the cloisters, scholarship, creativity and scientific… Continue

I recently watched the movie “The World According to Monsanto,” which together with the movie “Flow” illustrates how corporations are acquiring as much power as they can, up to and including controlling the basic necessities of survival. It is apparently anathema to them for anything to be free and for anyone to not be totally dependent on them. This is the path to monoculture, and because it increases both consumption and the vulnerability of the entire population to single points of failure,… Continue

The ability to capture and store energy for later use is an elusive goal that utilities and other companies in the power generation business have long pursued. Energy storage will be especially important in compensating for the intermittent nature of wind and solar energy sources, which is often out of… Continue

In the early 18th century, Jethro Tull wrote a book called Horse-hoeing Husbandry
in which he advocated vigorous tillage as the best way to make a profit at farming. We humans have been depleting soils around the planet ever since. Vigorous tillage, or plowing, burns the organic matter in the soil releasing nutrients faster than the plants can use them. It removes the protection of vegetative… Continue

TEN YEARS AFTER COLUMBINE: CANARY IN THE COAL MINE???

Shortly after the shootings, I wrote an essay about the incident for a national men’s website entitled “Male Shooters come in all ages”.
I was living in Denver on the tenth anniversary. I picked up a newspaper and saw that the entire front page of the… Continue

For one who has perception,
A mere sign is enough.

In his book “The Last Days of Ancient Sunlight,” author and radio host Thom Hartmann did the best job I’ve seen yet in summarizing the greatest challenges of our time, the reasons behind them, and what we can do about them. The book details the trends I’ve identified in my own research and provides a useful way of thinking about them, as a conflict between what he calls “older culture” and “younger culture” values.
Specifically, older cultures -- those that last thousands of years --… Continue

From the Wild Green Yonder
Fall has never been my favorite season. Going back to school, shivering in the first snowfall, darker and darker evenings, watching the trees become stripped and gangly… it all seemed so depressing. But as I’ve slowly learned to listen to nature’s patterns, I’m starting to see autumn as a time of precarious abundance, a time when we can live off… Continue
