I LIKE TO WATCH is an RSS feed of video content I find provocative, proactive, prescient or practical. Most of these will feature sustainability leaders talking about solutions. I will publish videos for projects that are worthy of support, people worthy of encouragement, and most important – items that will give you hope and spur you to join in making with us – the bright green future! I am also partial to bringing you speakers that you may not have heard of before, presenting ideas that are maybe a little strange. On a personal note I also like odd vids teaching odd skills, so there will be a few howtos. Last, laughter is critical to our immune systems and we need strong immune systems these days so I will throw in things that make me laugh.
There are a few ways to use the feed. I try to pass on pieces that cover issues at different levels of understanding. So I might pass a vid along because I think it makes the point well to an unititiated audience – in the hope that you will pass it on to an friend who needs motivation. Other pieces are in-depth lectures on aspect of sustainability that I barely understand. I pass those on in hopes of raising the level of discussion across the board.
I hope you enjoy what I curate! And by all means if you find a video out there that you think I should pass on – let me know!
Please support the creative people that do this sort of work!
From the movie [of the book] Being There – by Jerzy Kosinsky
President “Bobby”: Mr. Gardner, do you agree with Ben, or do you think that we can stimulate growth through temporary incentives?
Chance the Gardener: As long as the roots are not severed, all is well. And all will be well in the garden.
President “Bobby”: In the garden.
Chance the Gardener: Yes. In the garden, growth has it seasons. First comes spring and summer, but then we have fall and winter. And then we get spring and summer again.
President “Bobby”: Spring and summer.
Chance the Gardener: Yes.
President “Bobby”: Then fall and winter.
Chance the Gardener: Yes.
Benjamin Rand: I think what our insightful young friend is saying is that we welcome the inevitable seasons of nature, but we’re upset by the seasons of our economy.
Chance the Gardener: Yes! There will be growth in the spring!
Benjamin Rand: Hmm!
Chance the Gardener: Hmm!
President “Bobby”: Hm. Well, Mr. Gardner, I must admit that is one of the most refreshing and optimistic statements I’ve heard in a very, very long time.
President “Bobby”: I admire your good, solid sense. That’s precisely what we lack on Capitol Hill.
