My beautiful and brainy wife doesn't post very often, but I'm always glad when she does. Her recent post about permaculture is sticking in my brain this week. She found some excellent points about approaches to life that promote permaculture that tie directly into lifestylism, at least as I'm seeing it now...especially these:
  • Evoke whole system sensitivity: pay attention to whole cycles, not reduce everything to parts
  • Model ecologically-appropriate lifestyles for others to learn and mimic
  • Most importantly--have fun: life is too short for boredom, burn-out, tedium, and the like -- be sure to enjoy all of what you learn and do -- a healthy mind, body, and spirit (and relationships) can then be enjoyed as well. Help to design and grow healthy organizations, communities, and institutions accordingly.
