We are ALL Learning

We are ALL learning . . .

I've been thinking about sharing what it's like to be a facilitator of spiritual healing. It's been on my mind and often I wait until I get a clear signal before I move into action on my own ideas. Tonight, or shall I say this morning, it's after one am here in Ashland, Oregon, and it's time.

The road to getting to see the light shine in someone's eyes is long, filled with challenges and breakthroughs, musings and personal healing, long before I… Continue

Interplanetary communication. Sort of.

Most of the newspaper columns I write draw some juicy disagreement. That's good. I'm not wild about the name-calling stuff that points out what a moron I am without bothering to look seriously at the issue or topic at hand, but getting challenged on my analysis and perspective is what op-ed journalism is all about.

Occasionally I'm baffled that two people living on… Continue

We make it harder than it has to be...

I wonder sometimes. And I wonder about the widespread fear that hearing twisted vicious messages will make us, particularly the younger among us, more twisted and vicious. I think the young Neo-Nazis I wrote about recently do a pretty good job disproving that… Continue

Conservation raises prices?

Here's one that's starting to percolate in Ashland: one of the reason that power and water rates are going up (the city owns these utilities itself) is that people heeded the call to conserve and use less.

That just doesn't sit well with some folks.

I don't think you have to spend too much time reflecting on this before it's clear that there's no trickery or bad… Continue

The demise of Headwaters Gallery, Ashland, OR

It is with sadness that I write this....Headwaters Gallery will be closing its' doors as of the end of May, 2009. When we started our relationship in August, 2006, it was merely to host First Fridays and serve the community. December, 2006, was the start of my adventure in choosing the artists for the coming year. This voyage has been a tremendous growth process for me and the artistic showcases that were enjoyed by all! Thank you so much for the opportunity to bring my experience to the table,… Continue

Folks stood up, with different energies...

The appearance of some young not-too-sophisticated Neo-Nazis in Southern Oregon, which I wrote about in the previous post, triggered a juicy community conversation. Apparently we're still not jaded enough to ignore or tolerate this kind of ugliness. But the best response to it? I… Continue

Sustainable Village and Education Center

Through decades of societal emphasis on individual image and material success, our culture has lost sight of one of the most basic human needs: real connection. Increasing with each generation, we have forgotten how to have fulfilling relationships with ourselves and others. Marriages and families are suffering. Many people feel isolated even in the midst of other human beings.

As our world changes, and we move into a time where we are called to revive and sustain a socially… Continue

Earth & Eco News


The Anthropocene defines Earth's most recent geologic time period as being human-influenced, or anthropogenic, based on overwhelming global evidence that atmospheric, geologic, hydrologic, biospheric and other earth system processes are now altered by humans. The word combines the root "anthropo", meaning "human" with the root "-cene", the standard suffix for "epoch" in geologic time. The Anthropocene is distinguished as a new period either after or within the Holocene, the current epoch, which began approximately 10,000 years ago (about 8000 BC) with the end of the last glacial period.

Solar Power To Become 4th Largest Electric Power Capacity In The World (Passing Up Wind) | CleanTechnica

Frost & Sullivan’s recent analysis Global Power Industry Outlook, 2018, which posits that solar will surpass wind in global energy capacity starting in 2020, making it the fourth largest source of energy generation behind coal, gas and hydro. Less than a year ago, solar surpassed nuclear energy to reach 5th place.

California is throttling back record levels of solar—and that’s bad news for climate goals | MIT Technology Review

Californians are enjoying a sunny spring, which means the state’s solar farms and rooftop panels are flooding the grid with electricity. The problem is, they’re producing so much that plummeting prices and mandates by the state’s grid operator are forcing renewable power plants to throttle back production. In April, California solar and wind farms shut down or dialed back nearly 95,000 megawatt-hours of electricity, a new record, according to the California Independent System Operator, which manages the vast majority of the state’s electricity. That’s enough to power more than 30 million homes for an hour.
