In case you were wondering why I don’t post as much as before, it’s because I’m otherwise engaged! A few months ago, it was to prepare a powerpoint presentation on Hildegard of Bingen’s world-view:
This time it’s to prepare another presentation, the Evolution of (what we are now calling) the Green Acres Village.
For the first presentation, I had to read through scholarly books from the library, scan internet images, recognize the vastness of Hildegard’s message to contemporary society, and organize my presentation accordingly.
For this one I must catalog seven years worth of local photos, pick and choose between them, decide their order, how to best show the evolution of our little on-the-ground demonstration of a new template for living that aims to transform an existing suburban neighborhood of disconnected houses into a permaculture paradise of interconnectivity, stretching both vertically and horizontally: from the deep interior of the self, through the household economy, to skill and tool and workshop sharing with nearby folks, to an acknowledgement of cosmic harmonies that play into the frequency field we are creating to hold the immense possibilities of creativity that are built-in to all of us, if we can but get out of our own way. Anyway, yes, I’m busy, very busy, with work that is also a joy.
Here’s the blurb about the workshop I will present on September 18 at the North American Permaculture Convergence in Hopland, California. I then take both this and the Hildegard presentation, as well as two other more intimate offerings, on the road through the northwest.
