About me ...
Ruthless Clarity of Vision* Supporting that which is in service to Life - is a mission. I work on it every day. I work in service to clean water, healthy air, nourishing soil, intact stones, minerals that stay in the ground, cultural and language diversity, the ancestors, those to whom I will be an ancestor, and all living things that depends entirely on these things we have in common.
The integration of the following is one way I think practically about this generations-long, nuanced and complex undertaking toward the regeneration of the elements of life on earth:
ecological - plants and creatures, natural elements
social - connections, community and generosity
human - curiosity, love and wholeness
spiritual - interconnectedness, peace, humility and other inner capacities
cultural - slowness, diversity, art, ancestry and depth
material - sustainable and essential
financial - supports life and ecologically sound
experiential - intellectual and embodied
In a way this list flows from permaculture principles and practices, especially as described in Regenerative Enterprise by Ethan Roland and Gregory Landua.
