Hello, hello! Thanks for joining us. This is a shout out post, honoring the fabulous finds, suggestions and collaboration from readers & followers.
What?: A blog about “ecology, psychology, anthropology, art, activism, endurance”. Written by an ultra runner, this blog is about nature’s truth, found through distance running (one of the many perfect definitions of “bio-cadence”!).
Why?: The writer seems to discover his words by bouncing them along the cadence of his runner’s stride. He entices multiple themes, welcoming them into the rhythm of his breath. This blog opens the senses, dropping morsels of magic onto the reader’s skin, one after another. Upon finishing a post by “The Jasmine Dialogues”, my spirit is resonating in the frequencies of compassion and hope.
Shout Out: My dear husband- thank you for recommending this.
What?: A concise and instructive article about the sustainable living practices of a family in Mill Valley, CA. “The less I have, the richer I feel. Stuff weighs you down.”
Why?: Biocadence seeks to find (and encourage others to find) the balance wherein sustainable living increases quality of life and adjustments do not feel sacrificial. This family has artfully defined their own bio-cadence by embracing the abundance found in simplicity and crafting a home out of it. (Zero Waste Home Blog)
Shout Out: Shannon- a dear friend and soul sibling I’m delighted to reconnect with. Thank you for sharing!
What?: An organization building an urban plot in Kathmandu. They are filling it with edible landscaping, surrounding it with art, and teaching the community through rejuvenating the soil.
Why?: Hariyo Chowk is infusing bio-cadence into Kathmandu. Biocadence.org donates a portion of each sale to organizations promoting sustainable living. We celebrated Earth Day (in part), by making our first donation to Hariyo Chowk!
What?: This ballet company mixes classic ballet with modern dance and hires world class athletes to perform artful choreography.
Why?: Each dance is an athletic feat. In our quest to find harmony, we often feel that we are balancing on a tight-rope (thanks, Beau at Evolving Creations, for this imagery). The LINES ballet manifests this balance in every layer of their performance. From the push/pull expression of their character interaction to the delicate balance of lightweight strength in the ballerinas’ bodies, the details infuse an essence of dualistic bio-cadence into the audience.
Shout Out: My mom. I can’t imagine going to the ballet with anyone else… as she is the only person I know who loves ballet as I do!
*Anticipating the show, I couldn’t resist painting ballerinas. Almost done!!!
What?: This is a book about health, sustainability and politics. With piercing clarity and flashes of anger, Lierre Keith shares her arduous process of abandoning her vegan diet.
Why?: This book teaches us why a vegetarian/vegan diet may not be the most sustainable option. It also teaches us why a vegetarian/vegan diet may take more lives than it saves. For more about my personal thoughts on this, read: Is Eating Meat Sustainable?
Shout Out: My nutrition mentor and dear brother, Marcus Wolford, gave me this book as a Christmas gift. I’m certain that it changes the lives of every one of it’s readers. It has changed mine.
A huge shout out to the blogs that mentioned my articles. Thank you! Keep up the great work:
Responsible Bathroom: I love this site… the silent communication in the visual, tracking water savings commitments, as a drop splashes the map… Thank you Melinda!
The Hub: A place (geographical and technological) to share solutions for a better world. Thank you Cheri!
“The Pizza Box Recycling Mystery”: This article teaches us why soiled pizza boxes are not recyclable. Contaminating the recycling process may cost up to $700 Million a year. Thanks for sharing, Erin! Thanks Liz, for sharing that you compost the soiled boxes through the municipal system. This is a great incentive for consumers to solicit pizza operations that do not use bleached boxes!
The Sustainable Sweet & Savory Gourmet: A daily blog about a “Mom Testing the Recipes of Life…Living Sweet & Savory…and Sustainable!”
