Today is the Day of the Dead.
Transition themes storming my head-
my life, post-peak oil, the state of our soil,
"awh...can't I just go back to bed?"
No, I can't, 'cause Transition is a verb.
(And a name, and a balm, like an herb.)
There's choices to make, and actions to take,
with the power to heal or to perturb.
I strive for an element of grace
in these challenging times that we face.
But today I'm bereaved in the paradigms I believed in-
Beliefs I'll have to replace. (at a fast pace)
But how I'm inspired by creation!
and instincts of regeneration-
Oh, and on that note, please remember to vote,
let's rebuild an engaged, active nation!
Transition time, now is the season-
You know in your bones all the reasons.
Let's do all we can and start making a (Energy Descent Action) Plan,
grow food, and build hives to keep bees in!
Thank you for witnessing my yearning
I feel awkward but I'm trying, and I'm learning.
I know we're far better off working together
and I hope that your trust I am earning.
Cheers, Laura jean

Thanks twog friends for all to the work you do in our community!
The writing you all post here are great to read and have a wonderful personal flavor!
I'm volunteering to be part of the EDAP team within a theme group related to ecological restoration.
I don't know where the current location is online for planning EDAP group meetings & discussion, but David M started a work-group with related discussion here:
Please pass my name on to a related theme group that is formed during the Assembly & Council, as I will Not be able to attend the full day.
There are other folks interested in helping with the EDAP who will not be able to attend the Dec Assembly.
I've posted a volunteer request to the members of our Earth Gardens Network to assist with the EDA.
Response per Warren's twog-blog discussion :
...”Our hope is that this will provide a forum for others to share their thoughts and experiences, give us feedback on any questions or concerns we post and in general start good conversations- the kind of thing we might (and hope to!) do around periodic potlucks and other events.... so give us your feedback over the next couple of months and then we will revisit the Blog to see if we need to make changes or do something different..... Personally, I’m looking forward to more potlucks and face-to-face conversations, but till then, the Blog seems like a good next step....”
