"Go on forth young graduates,

And show us who you are

You're now our future leaders

We know you will go far"

All orderly pre-arranged

But four young girls...

A freezing cold evening

Where the stars shining bright

With frost blade flanks

From mouth and nose steam

In the clear silence

White untrodden snows

Nature's frozen pulse

Sleep like a little baby

One gracious moon

Consciousness co-arises nondually internal-external.

Today I want to talk about possibilities
for permacultural dynamics,
which are natural systemic

correlations,
between Left-brain deductive consciousness,
Right-brain inductive ecoconsciousness,
and a double boundary between these bicameral landscapes,
which we call unconsciousness.

The feasibility,
much less value,
of recognizing this...

Once upon a weedy lawn
At Cedar Oaks Retirement Home
There sat my mother, weak and old

Was winter, when all around us dies.

YinYin,
what did you most appreciate
learning at school this summer?

Probably in Community ReForesting.
You know, the EcoTherapy Class
I took
instead of eating lunch,
using "lunch" loosely
as synonymous with edible,
or at least tangentially related to edibility.

Oh yes, that one.

Kisses long linger warm lips tasted intense
so sweet like cured Valencia Oranges

When passion plants a multicultural seed,
then justice flourishes a polypathic trusting flower.

Permaculture and polyculture, 
grow holistic cause-effect karmic significance

Premium Member Family Therapy
Feminist ecotherapists,
deeply immersed in permacultural eco-logic,
a systematic teleology of cooperative nutrition economics,

our most articulate mentors often wander off
to pray for,
breathe and suffer and dance...
