Alright so I have an urgent mission for us to hone in on.

Paul is going to be the keynote speaker at a giant, unannounced conference.

We need help coming up with a good title and description.

Here's the idea:

Paul will be doing an off shoot of his 72 bricks presentation:




So, instead of a minute on 72 different things, he'd spend like 8 minutes on 12 different things. And for each one, he could say something like alright, here's a world problem, and here's a backyard(permaculture) solution.

He was thinking he could start out by putting up this quote from derrick jensen about how no one is going to solve the world's problems in your back yard and say something like.... CHALLENGE ACCEPTED. And then go into the talk.

Right now, it's tentatively "top twelve bricks for building a better world" unless sometime has a better suggestion


Alright, GO!

First offering, from a Buddhism perspective: "Twelve events known corporeally as "bricks" for envisioning a transcendent embracing of the time-space continuum".

Second offering: "Food, clothing, shelter: What choices do we have?"

Third possibility: "My name is Paul,.....I'm not a Road Warrior, but I make a fine pot of beans on a RMH...."


Did I win the Chrysler Cordoba and the trip for two to Fiji?...
