I’m watching the new doc on prime amazon (free) “from ground zero” about the mass sixth extinction and the consumption of animals at an alarming rate and global warming, pretty depressive stuff right…  [ For some reason I cannot locate that film I watched but you can watch this one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N2DP1I6CnXw ]

But now that we are in lock down, call it what you will, quarantining the whole planet.. wow what a most successful beginnings of a revolution I have ever seen unfold in my life and I’ve been to many protests and demonstrations… so how about we watch programs like this while we are quarantining, how about learning about our diets and how it affects climate change, how about the people in your house decide to learn more about Gaia and planetary intelligence and start to use this being caged inside our own homes and use this time wisely…

There are so many free documentaries. I have a library of over 350 DVDs.. call me (805.235.1733) or email me ([email protected]) as to what you may want to see. I do not have a list.. if you wish to make a list for me feel free and I will make you a meal or something…

Bring back bartering or a local currency, a face to face economy… google the relocalization movement and see who lives in your/our neck of the woods who may be doing more than you are doing now…

Use our quarantining as a way to learn more about Gaia and planetary intelligence and find out why and how we are waking up… and rally important discoveries like your purpose for being here… Visit a facebook page I created for more of this material about quaranteeing: https://www.facebook.com/hopebnner

Now you and we have plenty of time for reflection and discovering people in our communities who are familiar with tiny homes, Veganism, permaculture, community gardens, ecstatic dancing, bartering, local currency (contact me on how we created our own local currency called SLO HOURS, slo means San Luis Obispo and hours meant the value of youyr time, we borrowed the notion from Ithaca NY who started it all well at least in the 20th century… )

I think I will pause here… oops one more perhaps once a month the Siuslaw paper (in Florence, Oregon where I now live) would create a specific paper insert (once a month) that ONLY focuses on planetary changes, Gaia, the relocalization movement, a focus on local groups and films and organizations that are focusing and emphasizing solutions so we can start not just examining where we went wrong but where are we going and find out who is also assisting in this mammoth project here and now…

Visit http://www.hopedance.org for stories, reviews, film reviews and articles about this coming crisis and what we can do about it… Greta and others are saying we have six years left… and now with quaranteeing we have some time perhaps created by Gaia herself so we can hunker down and buy those seeds, dig up the front lawn, start composting in your own kitchen, learn what to do with your compost, learn how to create a chicken tractor if you need to eat eggs and wish the chickens to live in an uncaged and free roaming manner and on and on and on…. let’s all cherish this new quaranteeing that is now upon us and use this wisely… I’m available for conversations respecting social distancing.. maybe I need to learn about zoom, anyone wish to teach me? or guide me to the easiest way t start?

Please feel free to add your comments and email address, etc. thanks for listening….
