Could not make the embed function work; sorry!

Imagine nations with freed imaginations…

Sunday, September 18th, 2011

I always get frustrated when reading or hearing English poetry; but this time I understand 98%, and it is worthwhile sharing. I was in the same gathering once with Drew – and again I was frustrated because I couldn’t understand most of what he said… maybe my understanding of English has improved also since then?

Great line: Imagine nations with freed imagination!

Beyond the tragedy of the Commons

Thursday, September 8th, 2011

Elinor Ostrom, Nobel price winner on economics, explains how people can use natural resources in a sustainable way based on the diversity that exists in the world. She researched the economy of the Commons, an idea who’s time has (to) come.

Hazel Henderson, one of the leading women of the feminist movement in the sixties and seventies, is still very much alive and didn’t stop her evolution there. Here is a nice video of her current thinking – on design, on revolution.

Your deepest self is your home

Tuesday, August 30th, 2011

I have read some books from Mindell, but never got to any of his trainings in Worldwork, but it seems fascinating. Recently, I got a link to this video from Yuliaya, living and working in Kiev, and organising these trainings there.

There are a lot of good, great ideas in this video; worthwhile listening more than once!

An idea occured to me Sunday, working in my garden the whole weekend, I’m not growing vegetables, I’m cleaning this piece of land that I am currently stewarding and I’m doing my best to grow a good and healthy soil. On top of that I’m trying to create beauty along the way; and I am anjoying it all tremendously!

What follows is a little video of one of the many TED-talks, of which I am a fan. The Beauty of Pollination!
Beauty indeed!!!
