As we battle in Seattle and
other same places, Big Mama dances onward
Several moons ago while vision
questing in Death Valley Elfie was visited by a weeping grey lady.
She told Elfie she was weeping for us humans because in our frantic
race for progress we are destroying ourselves. We may think, she
said, we are merely destroying the environment and that we can
survive our degradations by various high tech solutions as yet
unknown. What will survive, she warned, is Big Mama. We humans
may cripple her, but she will prevail long after we are gone,
just as she did long before we came up from the monkeys.
Elfie was colorfully reminded
of this truth upon trucking back up on SunMt after several contentious
days in Seattle.

Persimmons, soft haychias
and apple-like fujus
Olives and a mandarin orange,
one of the few because the trees lost many to frost.
Pomegranate and an out of
Rosemary bloom and the loquat

Buy A Bale A Month Club
As reported in our e-mail message of October 12, member Vic
Bedoian has organized a Buy A Bale A Month Club. Each club member
pledges to donate to SunMt $5 a month to buy, truck and store
a bale of straw for Baby SunHouse, SunMt's demonstration passive
solar straw bale-adobe dwelling. Purpose to develop engineering
data so that straw bale construction can become a part of the
regular building. The club will live until the project is fully
financed. You can join by sending in your first $5.
This chronicle is transformed most every Monday.
