I fundamentally believe that it's very important at this moment in history, facing a very uncertain future, that certain individuals recognize the need to forge new tools and blaze new paths in to new ways of living. Rather than mere commentary, or "raising awareness" or else wise, I believe some of us need to, in a non-theoretical manner, effectively demonstrate a new and better way of living--of relating to the world and each other. I hope these projects are a worthy demonstration of that ethic. . .
