Rebuilding a sustainable world.

Changing Direction

The last couple of years have been tough.  It took a year to repair the damage done to my house by my tenants.  In February of last year I was finally able to put it on the market. Fortunately,  it sold right away. I will forever be thankful to my wonderful real estate agent and attorney for their hard work, great advise and support. That same year ended in heart surgery. I was bundled off to Mayo Clinic for a long needed aortic valve replacement.  Thank you Obamacare for making it possible and affordable.

Naturally, the blog took a back seat. However, it has been in the forefront of my mind for a while now and I’ve finally decided to reinstate it, but with a more targeted focus. Of course, we will continue to bring you the whimsical, unusual and inspiring along with news of how people around the world are creating vibrant and sustainable economies through alternative economic means.

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.
