While We Still Have Time

In spite of the grimness of the times in which we live, there is still hope. If you feel, like I do, that the usual discourse about matters of critical concern tends to be superficial, misguided, and false, then you might find some solace and inspiration here. I will try to offer insight and a holistic perspective on events and issues, and hopefully serve as a catalyst for raising the level of dialogue on this planet.

My Photo
Name:
Location: Madison, Wisconsin, United States

I was born in 1945, shortly before atom bombs were dropped on Japan. I served in the U.S. Army from 1968 to 1971. I earned master's degrees in Economics and Educational Psychology, and certificates in Web Page Design and as a Teacher of English as a Second Language. I followed an Indian guru for eight years, which immersed me in meditative practices and an attitude of reaching a higher level of being. A blog post listing the meditative practices I have pursued can be seen here.

From Hooverville to Walkerville









































____________________________________________

Here's a video of Russ Feingold speaking at Walkerville on Sunday, June 12, 2011.

This video of Madison musician Whitney Mann is from the 2010 Madison Music Awards. She performed for free at Walkerville on Saturday, June 11. She was pretty incredible, sounding like a mix of Janis Joplin and Nora Jones. A thirty minute video from Wisconsin Public Television can be seen here.

Here's a little history of Hooverville.

The pictures with the inflatable palm trees are a fun reminder of the fake video on Fox News in March, showing supposedly violent union protesters in Madison with palm trees in the background.

Here's a bit of an update.

It looks as though there's a bit of parting on the "right."

Here's another update.
