Musings From the Permaculture Garden

Nature teaches us: "The Problem is an Opportunity" Okay so give me every idea you can think of for how we turn this horrific and massive problem into an opportunity. I'll start.

This is a very real real opportunity to:

--shine a light on how the Tea Party actually governs. For real.

--take a firm stand for what we love

--build local connections and community to meet unmet needs

--grieve our losses

--engage in extreme self-care

--expose the obstructionist agenda for what it really is

--see the populist right confront the corporatist right

--cultivate compassion as we reach out and help those who will inevitably be left behind

--love each other

--tell stories and cultivate compassion

--strengthen grassroots actions on climate

--show up en masse to defend the sacred

--live our purpose. We are here for a reason.

Other opportunities?
