‘Adda’ means a place where people(usually friends) gather for a conversation. This tree is one of our addas in town. We usually gather here in the evenings but today is special. Today was supposed to be curfew as well, but the public announcement system announced early in the morning the town open from 6 AM to 6 PM. Though most private establishments remain close and few people out on the streets, we are out in our adda. Maybe tomorrow its complete curfew again. The election results are being declared, someone’s going to win, someone’s going to lose, and politics will play its game.

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.
