SUN CHARGE & ENERGY iPOD. Eagle Cap Wilderness . . .

SOLAR will replace OIL as easily as digital cameras

replaced their analog counterparts. It’s hard to stop

what’s better in every way.





ENERGY iPod


Sine sole sileo
(Without sun I am silent)


Imagine a handy little device you could put in your pocket, one that
condenses and stores, instead of an entire library’s worth of information,
an entire household’s worth of kilowatts. Energy solely from the Sun.
Is this possible? Why not?

If the whole of Shakespeare can be condensed to the head of a pin,
so can the whole of Einstein.

The only thing missing, it seems to me, is a clear perception of necessity.

Necessity, here, means two things. There's both a logical side of it,
and an ethical side, a kind of ethical 'must' or imperative that we change
directions. Once we see with absolute inner clarity that the current
fossil fuel path is taking us straight into a new Dark Age of shortages,
pollution, climate chaos, and resource wars, we will see that we have no
alternative but to resolutely change course, and follow the way
of the Sun.




SNOW COCKTAIL

Zinc from China,

Caesium from Japan.

Atrazine from the Basel.

Mercury from Seattle,

Lead from Detroit.


Snow cocktail of the High Wallowas,

pure spring water mixed with crushed snow,

these drifts that linger into the lazy heat of July.


Clear. Cool. Refreshing.


I drink to your health, friend.

For better or worse, we’re in this together,

married to the oneness of the world.
