Rebuilding a sustainable world.


Leave a comment

Have spent the last several months moving back to my house in Illinois and starting a new job.  Every available moment’s been devoted to getting rid of trash left by the tenants, cleaning walls, cabinets and surfaces and making repairs.  I finally took a breather this weekend and watched a gorgeous Korean film on Netflix – A Moment to Remember.  It is not perfect.  Some of the minor characters are flawed and the last part of the film is overwrought and unrealistic. But, the music and cinematography are exquisite. They infuse the film with a sensuality that intensifies the emotions and leaves the viewer with an aching sense of the world’s beauty.

I was born in Croatia, at that time Yugoslavia. My family moved to the US when I was very young, but I still treasure the memories of my grandfather teaching me how to protect myself against the "evil eye," my grandmother shopping early every morning, at the open air market, to buy the freshest vegetables for the day's meals, and the traditions that were the underpinnings of our society. Someone once noted that "For all of us that want to move forward, there are a very few that want to keep the old methods of production, traditions and crafts alive." I am a fellow traveler with those who value the old traditions and folk wisdom. I believe the knowledge they possess can contribute significantly to our efforts to build a more sustainable world; one that values the individual over the corporation, conservation over growth and happiness over wealth.
