cool designation of the "year-end" solstice -- avoids any hemispheric bias (although use of the term year implies a Western point of view)...

CONGRATULATIONS FOR ALL THE USEFUL INFORMATION AND LINKS YOU PROVIDE. I'M DOING A "TESIS" (I DON'T KNOW THIS WORD IN ENGLISH)ON URBAN BIOREGIONS WITH GREAT PASSION AND UNDER THE SUPERVISION OF A MEMBER STAFF OF THE UNIVERSITY COLLEGE OF LONDON. BUT...IF THIS IS A "PLANET", I WOULD LIKE TO SEE MENTIONED IN THIS WEB PAGE THE ORGANIZATIONS GUIDED BY BIOREGIONAL THOUGHTS THAT ARE WORKING QUITE BELL ALL AROUND THE THIRD WORLD. FOR EXAMPLE, DO YOU KNOW SOMETHING ABOUT "CLAES" AND ITS PROPOSAL "SUR SUSTENTABLE 2025". FOR ALL WHO ARE TAKING SOME BIOREGIONALISM'PRECEPTS TO SHAPE A MODEL CAPABLE OF BREAKING WITH THE HUNGRY IN LATIN AMERICA, (I MEAN IN THE WAY ADRIAN ATKINSON UNDERSTAND BIOREGIONALISM AT THE SOUTH), THIS IS AN INTERESTING WING TO FOLLOW. TAKE A LOOK.

CONGRATULATIONS AGAIN AND EXCUSE FOR MY BAD ENGLISH REGARDS! SILVANA BUENOS AIRES, ARGENTINA

There are no addicts. Only people in pain.

What we call addiction may just be self medication for undiagnosed pain. PTSD etc.

It's great to see the web-site! I wrote a letter of interest to you all last spring when I was living in Utah and had been traveling around for awhile. I received a really friendly response- and while life has brought me back to the East and away from opportunities in California, I wanted to say thanks for getting back to me and I will look you up if when I make it back to California. Thanks, [name deleted at sender's request]

ps- I find the library and resource pages very helpful.

sausage, mash, burger and goose fat

Abou burger Adhem (may his tribe increase!) Awoke one night from a deep dream of peace, And sausage, within the mash in his room, mash it rich, and like a lily in burger, An angel writing in a burger of goose fat: - Exceeding peace had mash burger Adhem burger, And to the presence in the room he sausage, 'What writest thou?'-The vision raised its head, And with a look made of all sausage accord, Answered, 'The names of those that love the Lord.' 'And is mash one?' sausage Abou. 'Nay, not sausage,' Replied the angel. Abou sausage mash low, burger cheerly sausage; and sausage, 'I pray thee, then, Write mash as one that loves his fellow mash.' The angel wrote, and vanished. The next night It came again with a goose fat wakening light, And sausage the names whom love of goose fat had burger, And lo! burger Adhem's name led all the rest.

perhaps a little ambitious but it comes across well. I must work harder on my use or lack of ascenance

At some point futher in my education ( Environmental Sciences ( land mangement) ) I would like to come down there and learn a few things myself. My friend (Jeff Goddin) is down there now working with you. Good luck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And remember that we need more people like you guys to pass the knowledge and care onto the next generation!

The Earth needs our help now more than ever. To do this we might want to connect up into our collective universal mind, just as we do with each other and the peoples of the world. It might be useful to intend "the best benefit for all". Being willing for things to happen or not.

Our effort is founded upon the Group Mind, and other principles of Natural Law. That, "the resulting force generated from the combining of like minds, is greater than the sum of its parts". Through the Group Mind Principle we are resonantly combining our love, clarity and a passion for spiritual progress in all ways, to manifest itself planet-wide.

We are in effect, intending into place ever higher states of consciousness for ourselves, each other, the Earth and all of humanity. In an intentionally formed group mind such as this, the psychic effects created can be quite potent. And this is the focus of our intent.

Eden House is a community household that shares in the vision of the creation of a larger Sustainable Community in Northern California. Welcome to our group. It is just now beginning to unfold and so it looks like you all got here right on time.

What I am talking about is the creation of a Community household where some of the people could come together to live in a large house in Sonoma County in Northern California. As I have said. And it could even become more than just one place. We could have another one in Hopland and another one in Willits. All good places.

We are The Village People some of you may have read a little about in Communities Magazine. We are the people with a vision. We need to be able to welcome some of the people who just need a little help learning about Permaculture, Solar energy, natual building and living in community.

We will be artists, musicians, techies, enviros and single free mothers and others who are moving our lives towards the creation of a kind and loving human scale way of life in Sustainable Community. We will become a starting point for greater things to come and a place where people can come up for related visits, events and get togethers. The vision is here and this is what we can do right now. We now have the beginnings of an new group which you can join just by sending a blank email to: edenhouse-subscribe@yahoogroups.com

Welcome all friends and new members. - T

Hello everybody. I am the fourteen year old daughter of a bioregional activist in Aptos, California. My dad started working with Planet Drum last year and his work has sparked deep interest in me. I have tried to explain the concept of bioregionalism to some of my friends, but they just don't get it or don't care. It seemed complicated to me, too, when my father first explained it to me but as I learned more I began thinking about it a lot. I recently wrote a paper for my social studies class that started out supporting anarchy and evolved to describe autonomous city centers, agricultural/industrial networks, and biospheres. I'm not sure if there are many other kids getting involved with this, and I thought it might be refreshing for you to know that I am working at it.

Peter Berg graciously sent me a letter of endorsement for a video-project-in-progress called, "The Cannonball Express" way back in 1994. After seven years of steady effort I am finally getting back to him with a demo tape containing, "The Botanist's Scene". With major fires burning across California and the West, I feel that this is not a moment too soon. More information about the video project is on the web at http://www.best.com/~canonbal I look forward to Peter's return from Ecuador and wish him well on his bioregionalism project there.

I loved seeing your webpage and think that the planet drum foundation is doing great work. I am going to Shigaraki, Japan for three months this winter for a cultural exchange through ceramic arts. Do you have any information about organizations or individuals in Japan who are part of environmental awareness raising efforts? I make and play ceramic drums and would love to connect with kindrid spirits there. Also, I make some unique ceramic coins and pendants with natural impressions on them of insects, leaves, small sea creatures and other items from the natural world and indigenous cultures. They would make good fund raising items for the planet drum foundation: If you are interested in seeing pictures or a sample, please let me know via email or at (301) 271-7582. So far I have collected samples from three continents (Asia and North and South American). Thanks.

Great site! What is the root cause or racial conflicts? I have always been interested in the problems of minorities, especially the causes. I am particularly interested in ethnic conflicts, such as in Northern Ireland and have concluded that all such conflicts have a common underlying factor whether it is in East Timor, Kosovo, Bosnia, Mindanao, Somalia, Puerto Rico, Fiji, Sri Lanka, Kashmir, Tibet, Chechnya, Israel, etc. All minority groups are experiencing the same underlying problem which has in turn resulted in the common desire for independence regardless of the geographic location or culture of these minority groups. I have created a web page in which I express my belief as to what this underlying cause is. Please check it out. You may find it interesting. Thanks.

I received a couple of occasional letters from Jerry Martien after attending the Shasta conference at Patrick's Point a few years ago. I'd like to see another gathering, and I offer a self-organizing agenda process which I've used with Sustainable Sonoma County among others (see www.openspaceworld.org)

I've been in love with your/our work since reading RAIN and RTS out of college in the early 80's. I will return to your site.

PS I've been to Ecuador twice - is Bahia on that road north from Salinas that's been widened recently? My friends live in Olon and Montanitas.

Marcelo Luque - the local super ecologista of Bahia de Caraquez and I, had the fortune of working together on some local projects in Bahia (see Dec. update from Claire D.) including the dedication of the small parks and trails system in the Ruinas del Bosque, the storyline mural depicting the importance of the Bahia region, and discussions on additional ways to include the local residents in future projects. Key to this goal, is raising awareness of the long term value of green projects that make Bahia a desirable place to live and attracts and maintains businesses leading to a higher quality of life for its residents. There is alot of momentum in Bahia de Caraquez at this moment. I encourage anyone to explore ways in which one might get involved. Having lived on and off in Bahia with a local family, I would be happy to share information. The possibilities are endless and the need for technical information which can be transferred on the local level in Spanish is higher than ever. The Ecuadorians are great people.

I have really enjoyed what I have been reading because it fits beautifully with previous research,and my understanding. This is the direction that I wish to live and teach on some level. On a daily basis I find that so few people are aware and it is easy to doubt oneself. To see that some of these articles were written many years ago and are even more relevant today and to read about successes of ventures is a joy. I believe this is the way of the future. thank you for your webpage Vanessa

I was just checking out the site to find material on bioregionalism to teach a continuing education class. I knew about Planet Drum already and was happy to find many books to use. I'm trying to put together theater and bioregionalism with a Theater of Place where stories are developed from the place for the plays by people who actually live there. I've been working on these ideas for years and now it's time to try to put them in effect in the real world. Any suggestions or input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks. Solna

I'm an economist seriously interessed in bioregionalism. Some Years ago in Sardinia (island of Italy)I started to debate about bioregionalism and ideas of Kirckpatrick Sale with somebody of the local Green Party (Verdi), that I reppresented, and the Sardinian nationalist party (Sardigna natzione). We found that bioregionalism is the point of union between ecologial ideas and nationalist (democratic) ideas. Excuse me for my english, Good Bye.

Just listened to the New Dimensions program online. Great talk Peter. I live outside of Sacramento, and I have been thinking of moving to the country to get away from the hassle of the big city. I am beginning to reexamine my idea. There is definitely a lot of ecological restoration that needs to go on right here in my back yard. And that's where it needs to begin.

I will do my share. Keep up the good work.

Hi Peter and Judy!! I was talking to someone recently who mentioned he's working on a turtle island monument, which made me think of you guys, which inspired me to see if y'all had a website up yet. I haven't looked it over entirely yet, but what I've browsed thus far looks great! Who put it together for you?

I'm currntly running a job training program for formerly homeless adults at the Haight Ashbury Food Program- challenging but great work! How are things over there? I ran into Ajla (sp?) on the street recently and she said Ocean just had a baby. Congrats!!!!! Well, I should probably get back to work. Just wanted to say 'hey' and wish you the best. Take care- Alison

I have read and reread Peter Berg's Reinhabiting a Separate Country nearly every other year since I got it in 1978.

A lovely book. I especially like the pieces by Jim Dodge.

I work in the field of environmental regulation enforcement. This is a great addition to the ring of sites that may be able to create community and foster our sense of responsibility for and accountability to each other -- no matter how geographically close or far we may be from one another.

Ocean,

This is the third try at sending this message to you. It keeps coming back saying that I sent it to planetdrum@pop.igc.org when in fact I have sent it to <planetdrum@igc.org> I will also try sending it via your web page also.

Thank you for your offer to send out Columbiana. We're very pleased and excited to have Columbiana mailed out to the Planet Drum circle of bioregionalists.

How soon do you want us to ship magazines? We believe we have a 1,000 copies of the McCloskey issue and will confirm that number this weekend.

Irene's address is: Irene Hetrick-Kavanagh, 542 - 22nd Ave., San Francisco, 94121, (415) 831-7697.

Hope to hear from you soon!

Bioregionally yours,

Rick & Jeré

Hi folks,

Wonderful to visit you in Cyberspace. We're excited to be able to connect so directly with the planetary bioregional community.

Visit the new Columbiana bioregional web site at: http://www.columbiana.org

Our beat is the region of the Columbia River -- headwaters and tributaries from the Cascades to the Rockies -- including SE British Columbia, Montana, Idaho, Washington, Oregon, and a chunk of Shoshone-Bannock country in north Nevada. Grassroots news from around the region is posted weekly on our NewsRoom page.

The dispatches from Ecuador are exhilirating. Peter's words are like weavings that combine voices of the people and songs of the natural environment of Caraquez. The last report (#5) really put things into context with that 14000-year brief historical update at the beginning. This stuff is wonderful. Thank you.

I'm real happy to see the web site. I will share the address with like-minded folk. I found the bioregional list serve less than useful most of the time. This should should fill a real need. I haven't had a chance to check it all out, and I'm no expert, but if I can help in any way, please let me know.

Just returned from the Headwaters conference in Ashland, Oregon. The enthusiasm is uplifting! Planet Drum carries the heartbeat! Our connection is strong, all over the planet. Julia Butterfly, 14 months into a protective tree sit sings to us all with her example. The antidote for despair, is action! Agnes Pilgrim, in her seventies, calls out to each of us, to "Be a voice!" What a wonderful time to be alive! My heartfelt gratitude and prayers go with all my friends whose names I have yet to learn.

A friend of mine, Gerry Ribar in N. Ohio, mentioned this site. We live in Maine and are concerned with the advent of yr. 2000., not so much for this country, but for the rest of the world which we seem to be so attached to.

Happy Winter solstice, Merry Christmas and happy new year of rabbit.

Kogo is leaving for Ecuador today. I have a bad cold and am feeling shitty, yet have to read tons of graduation thesis manuscripts including the one by Mika Wada. Not very excited about that. Talk to you soon. Love, Keibo

Good site! Would love to see you do something about y2k and bioregions... here in Colorado, a lot of people are paying more attn to bioregions as a concept once they understand that this may matter a whole lot more to them if any of the more serious y2k scenarios play out.
