Walking in the dark

I tend to be a night owl, so most of my training hikes have been in the evenings. Monday night was no exception. After walking up the fairly well lit hills of Ashland's south side, I continued into the darkness of Siskiyou Mountain Park. A few weeks ago, while on the same path, when the way got darker, I decided not to venture into the unknown. Monday night was different.

Especially when there is moonlight, I find flashlights to be a nuisance. They tend to prevent our natural night…

Progress ... (part III) an entry detailing some of my preparations for a journey up Mt. Kilimanjaro!

Republished from Light Ripple Enterprises

This morning started well and the day just kept getting better. I was up early enough for meditation and breakfast before 10am! Usually by that time on the weekends I'm just rolling over to listen to NPR. But there was more progress to be made. First, a dear friend is moving back to Berkeley and need some help loading the moving truck. Indeed, many hands make light work. With all…

Progress ... (part II) an entry detailing some of my preparations for a journey up Mt. Kilimanjaro!

Republished from Light Ripple Enterprises

Saturday morning I was determined to get an earlier start than most weekends. It was going to be my 'long' day of 3+ hours. While the terrain was not difficult, the distance wore me out a little. This was the longest training hike to date in both time and distance. A stop to visit the pharmacist on the way out and the way back gave me a couple of breaks. It also gave me malaria…

Progress... an entry detailing some of my preparations for a journey up Mt. Kilimanjaro!

... moving forward or an advance.

First of all, a big congratulations to the Green Bay Packers and their victory over 'da Bearz'. They are living "progress", advancing to Superbowl XLV.

It feels like there has been some good progress made in my preparations to climb to Uhuru (Freedom) Peak just 25 days from now. Much has been accomplished; much is still to be done.

Thursday was my day of rest. All this walking around is great exercise, but sometimes a guy just gets…

Spiritualizing our Dimensional Self

    The purpose of spiritualizing our dimensional self is to come into wholeness and balance and to advance our perceptions.  This is a permanent shift in consciousness—an upliftment that is stabilized.  The polarities of everyday living are transcended when our dimensional self is established in spiritual wholeness.  We feel anchored in peace.  We have a neutral observer perspective that is receptive to the infinite intelligence of the universe.  We are home in…

Blessed Unrest

Here are some important thoughts from Paul Hawken's Blessed Unrest (Viking, 2007), page 118:



"The United States has the worst social record of any developed country in the world, and it is worse than that of many developing countries. By almost any measure of well-being, the United States brings up the rear: It is… Continue

Growing Food Has Never Been Easier

 

One of my great joys is to grow my own food and I have a small 10x10 plot in the Ashland Community Garden.  With proper rotation and selection of plant varieties, I have lots of delicious, nutritious veggies to use during the  spring/summer/fall growing season.  But when Winter hits I start to run out of homegrown produce.  This…

Excerpted from The Good Life: How to Create a Sustainable and Fulfilling Lifestyle

Food and economics are intimately related. The typical family spends between 15 and 20 percent of their overall household budget for food. Much of this money is not spent supporting local economies, but goes into global corporate food chains that destroy local culture and economies by being more concerned with their bottom line than they are with people or planet. In The End of Food,… Continue

Trump Tells Greta Thunberg To 'Focus On Other Countries' After She Tells Leaders to "Panic" About Climate Change | Trending Politics

The President's comments come after Thunberg hammered President Trump for leaving the Paris Climate Accord. The speech by the far-left climate activist was made at the World Economic Forum in Davos Switzerland.

12 in '20 - Energy and Commerce Committee

There are bipartisan bills in Congress that we could pass right now to ensure the United States remains a global leader in emissions reduction, economic productivity, and clean energy production, all at once.” That’s what Energy and Commerce Republican Leader Greg Walden (R-OR) said in September, calling on Democrats to work with Republicans on commonsense, bipartisan solutions to protect the environment and our economy.

Trump: US Will Join One Trillion Trees Initiative | The Epoch Times

The United States is joining the One Trillion Trees Initiative, President Donald Trump said on Jan. 21. Speaking at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, Trump said the United States is joining the initiative. “We’re committed to conserving the majesty of God’s creation and the natural beauty of our world,” Trump said. America “will continue to show strong leadership in restoring, growing, and better managing our trees and our forests,” he added, drawing applause. The One Trillion Trees Initiative was announced during the forum. It encourages countries to plant trees as part of the effort to combat climate change. The goal is to plant 1 trillion trees by 2050. Ecologist Dr. Thomas Crowther told the forum last year that humans should plant 1.2 trillion trees to cancel out the past decade of CO2 emissions.

Unless It Changes, Capitalism Will Starve Humanity By 2050 | Forbes

Human activities are behind the extinction crisis. Commercial agriculture, timber extraction, and infrastructure development are causing habitat loss and our reliance on fossil fuels is a major contributor to climate change. Public corporations are responding to consumer demand and pressure from Wall Street. Professors Christopher Wright and Daniel Nyberg published Climate Change, Capitalism and Corporations last fall, arguing that businesses are locked in a cycle of exploiting the world's resources in ever more creative ways.
