"Shikha, I hope we can still be in touch.  You dropped of the last call and didn't hear what I said about you... but you can listen to the recording... it was in the final harvest part of the call.  Or, I can try to recall it if we…"

"I would love to SEE a rendition of your initial vision.  Perhaps if you got the ball rolling with a visual, we could figure out a way fo folks to add on.  How might we execute a collective collage virtually?"

"Pawel. I think it is really important for you to be here. If your perspective is the perspective of one being ignored, then that is an ESSENTIAL perspective to have here at this cafe. It is vital. I also think saving the world is extremely important."

The Occupy Cafe Dream Poster

John Lennon's song, "Imagine" comes to my mind when I think about this potential collaborative creation. I envision a series of prints of a 12"x16" poster, with some kind of statement on it, of course, beautifully decorated and crafted by the genius of our collective imagination. I'm not suggesting some kind of decree about who 'we' are based on 'what we believe' should be the state of various aspects of our existence and how we should go about getting there. There is plenty of that, already.…See More

A Confusion of Priorities

Posted on September 20, 2012 at 5:00pm 0 Comments

Actions can be confusing sometimes. We live with so many concepts, things like: charity, prayer, mercy, discipline, wellness...but what do any of these things really mean? How can we live these concepts in our day to day lives? We obviously have to bear in mind that certain values are more appropriately manifested in particular times and ways than in other times and ways. For example, you see someone on the street, dressed in a business suit, rushing around. You don't know anything about…

My Cat Has Cosmic Consciousness Part III or IV: She Partakes of Samsara by Playing with String

Posted on September 16, 2012 at 6:00pm 2 Comments

Of course, it is not that my cat merely sits all day and all night in a deep deep state of self fulfilling bliss. She eats, she runs around, and together, we play with string. When we begin to play, she is often uncertain; does she want to step into this cycle, does she not? She begins to bat, and eventually to catch the string, then repeatedly. Maybe she feels rewarded for this, as she lifts her head to my hand, string under her paw.

It is not that she doesn't 'enjoy'. Enjoyment must…

Part 2: The Anti-Space Race Phenomenon

Posted on September 12, 2012 at 12:30pm 3 Comments

From what I understand, the space race was about whether the U.S. or the U.S.S.R was the most disciplined, if discipline meant creating durable vessels for humans to go somewhere other than the planet which sustains life. So basically we flew up into space, and planted our flag. I think we won, but I might be mistaken. Anyways, there is no U.S.S.R anymore so we either won, or definitely lost, depending on whether or not it is good to remain, which seemed to be a question in the space race:…

Tamera for Tomorrow: A Model for the 99% and Creating Just and Environmentally Sustainable Communities

Lets speak to the deep meaning of the vampire myth in relationship to modern day.  How many people, especially many of us rationalized liberals, realize that myth speaks to reality.   Our issue in not understanding is our lack of an intelligent understanding of metaphor, which epistemologist Gregory Baetson defines as “a language…See More

"Oh, reading your earlier comment, Ben - maybe your 11:30 am is the "gift circle" whatever that is or the " additional hour prior to".  Does that mean that the call/online space opens ahead of time ? "
