How I spent my Covid-19 Spring - Summer - Fall Vacation!

As co-editor and co-publisher of

Connecting the Dots,A Roadmap for Critical Systemic Change

In Connecting the Dots, systems researcher and ecopsychologist Dave Ewoldt uses his wide breadth of knowledge to examine the underlying causes of our current destructive status-quo, explain how and why a shift is possible, and provide us with numerous non-hierarchical tools that will help facilitate positive, powerful systemic change. His comprehensive framework for coalition building is based on the way natural systems function–because after billions of years of remaining in balance, Nature is the ultimate resource to support and guide our efforts toward a sustainable, life-supportive paradigm.

Sadly, on April 7th one of my favorite songwriters of all time, John Prine was taken by Covid-19.  I've been performing Prine songs since the early 70s - so I plan on doing a block of John Prine songs during the stream.
