Today is the two year anniversary of Transition Voice Magazine. Woo hoo!
During this time we’ve written about everything from political agitation that was unapologetic about the need for revolution to how to trim your garden using little more than a sharp blade and a good bodily stance.
Obstacle or opportunity?
When we first started out we fell much more into the “WAKE UP TO PEAK OIL!” camp. We were astonished to find so many still so asleep at the wheel on resource issues and what that meant for the future of economy and lifestyle.
Lately we’ve been more drawn to re-skilling, finding great enjoyment in making butter, sharpening blades, storing up rope, and eating a seasonal paleo diet.
Love is all you need
Running Transition Voice is a labor of love in so many ways.
But it’s a gift of love, too.
We’ve met (and interviewed) awesome people, learned so much, been exposed to mind boggling information, encountered others attempting Transition ventures in places as far flung as Tibet and Australia, Italy and Northern California, Florida and Vermont.
People send us books, product samples, ideas, criticisms, witticisms, and encouragement.
Great writers, researchers and passionate advocates such as Guy McPherson, Sherry Ackerman, Vicki Lipski, Ralph Nader, Bill McKibben, Naomi Wolfe, and others have shared their wisdom, outrage, insights, and suggestions.
All in all, for a little website in one of America’s top ten small cities, we’ve done all right, and enjoyed it every step of the way.
A little help from our friends
We hope you’ll not only join us in toasting today, but stay with us as we journey forth into the future.
If you’re so inclined (and able) to donate to our cause we’d more than appreciate your contribution of $10 (or whatever amount you’re inclined to give).
Thanks for all that you do in supporting Transition Voice. Here’s to keeping the conversation alive and the Great Turning in our sights!
