To access all links in this story please visit SPEAKING TRUTH TO POWER



We started out just bringing muffins or extra eggs to neighbors. This has mushroomed into so much back and forth bartering, gifting and trading that it is just mind-boggling!

THE PSYCHOLOGY OF CHANGE: CULTIVATING RESILIENCE AT THE POINT OF NO RETURN, By Carolyn Baker

I wake to sleep, and take my waking slow.

I feel my fate in what I cannot fear.

I learn by going where I have to go.

What a relief. It is actually good for us.

Average World use, 11 tons per household. I took the carbon test and our (2 people) carbon count was 15 tons. 15 tons of gas seems like a lot for 2 people. However, carbon is a… Continue

Individuals concerned with the unprecedented changes the earth community is undergoing tend to venerate America’s Amish for their simple, earth-based lifestyle of frugality and solid commitment to caring for the other members of their community. There is much we have to learn from them, but more recently, there is yet another lesson they offer, and perhaps, not one we expected.



A Wall St. Journal article, July 1 entitled, “A bank run teaches the ‘plain people’ about the risks of… Continue
