Another Great One.
Just finished Naomi Klein’s latest and I think it will likely be one of the most important books of the 21st Century. Here’s two quotes- one from the beginning of the book and one toward the end:
"…our economic system and our planetary system are now at war. Or, more accurately, our economy is at war with many forms of life on earth, including human life. What the climate needs to avoid collapse is a contraction in humanity’s use of resources; what our economic model demands to avoid collapse is unfettered expansion. Only one of these sets of rules can be changed, and it’s not the laws of nature.”
“Fundamentally, the task is to articulate not just an alternative set of policy proposals but an alternative worldview to rival the one at the heart of the ecological crisis— embedded in interdependence rather than hyper-individualism, reciprocity rather than dominance, and cooperation rather than hierarchy.”

Help Support a Creative Reuse Center.
Austin Creative Reuse is looking for help with establishing a community reuse center.For more info or to donate go here
We collect surplus and gently-used materials that are bound for the landfill from local businesses and individuals. With just a little creative thought, these materials can be reused or adapted for a new purpose.
Austin Creative Reuse has helped vinyl banners from old advertising campaigns find a new life as colorful, durable tote bags.
Last season’s fabric swatches from interior design businesses have become costumes, quilts, and decorative pendants.
Foam core signs from industry conferences have transformed into raw materials for educational classroom projects.
The possibilities for creatively reusing materials are limited only by imagination—something Austin has no shortage of!

our neighbor is weed-eating in the rain shirtless with a unhealed stab wound in his gut. intestines need fresh air.
