What is 7G ?  (A Seventh Generation philosophy)

Well, it’s not me—it’s a mission. It’s not a logo or a business for self-gain, nor is it living in a fancy house with solar panels. It’s not living off grid and driving a veggie oil-powered truck either. To me it’s not living on the hill above town just wishing for peace . . . to me it’s breaking bread with family and friends and being in awe! To me it’s asking for partners in happiness and the humility to learn how to make a living out of life right now. It’s asking myself to practice how to commune with nature, and to learn with the unseen micro life—the life that lives in the air I breathe, the soil beneath me, and the water I drink. This to me seems to be 7G and a key to our collective health and heartcore well-being. I hope to relate and share with other creatures and humans, acting and evolving into love with faith . . . leaving fear behind like training wheels. It’s possible to choose a symbiotic relationship with oneself for the common good of all life, and with a little help from our friends we may yet get see our great-grandchildren laugh. Maybe it’s best to have a back-up plan and study zen balance, considering non-action is a path as well.

The Closed Basin Project Dead trees, dry creeks & dropping water tables

As you approach Crestone on T Road you may notice that North Crestone Creek, which runs into the Wildlife Refuge, is dry; and you may also notice that most of the many cottonwood trees that follow its course are dead or dying. As the raven flies across the North Crestone Creek watershed, from the peaks surrounding Ground Hog Basin and the Venable Cirque which drain into the North Fork, across the two great basins that drain off the sides of Comanche and Fluted peaks into the Middle Fork, to the peaks surrounding North Crestone Lake and North Crestone Creek, is a distance of five miles. Y
