Potlatch Cafe for Gardeners

Dear Covenant to Empower Children, Inc.

I was in a Potlatch CoHousing Cafe
just the other repair-invested day
for both ego and eco therapy.

Our host introduced
this Potlatch SkillShare event
speaking to himself:

The less I share skills and resources
on cooperative terms
of common educational PositivEnergy endeavor,

The more plutocratically powerful
anti-social logic
of private learning affluence
elitism
entitlement
sexism
racism
tumors growing within healthier democracy,

Cooperative
paid-forward ownership
for restoring justice,
justice
as cooperatively-owned peace.

So it was
I thought of you,
covenanted to caregiving
and not corporate profit,
your mission to restore therapeutic health
to under-nourished children
and their not-full-healthing families.

Broken souls
with broken belongings,
longings for everything therapeutic cafes
and lending libraries
for computers and karaoke machines,
musical instruments and microphones,
speakers and costumes,
clothing and furniture,
bicycles and toys,
stories and songs
therapeutically
non-violently shared.

Repaired
ecotherapeutic co-housing and garden fixers
to extend family neighborhood co-responsibilities.

Cooperatively organized
by non-violent therapeutic innovators,
local restorative justice administrators,
nonprofit co-housing and community gardening
and nutritious interior-exterior landscaping,
inside-outside nurturing design,
cooperatively-invested and self-managing families
growing neighborhood organizations.

Covenants to prosper
tool and toy and school libraries,
co-housing recreation skill-sharing centers,
ego-ecotherapeutic non-violent churches and synagogues
and temples and courthouses
and cooperatively-owned city halls
co-investing in ego/ecotherapeutic businesses
and vocations.

Ego/eco-therapist interns
including skilled do-it-ourselfers,
professional hurt child cooperative parents
with childcare giving repair businesses,
apprentices interested in synergetic
therapy-related careers
in neighborhood planning and co-design,
outdoor installations and ego/eco-evaluations
of health care giving as love receiving.

This Potlatch Cafe and Garden
was multiculturally filled
to multigenerational capacity
with innovative self and other fixers
cooperatively learning
about facilitating ego/eco-repairs.

Which brings in new employee-owners
to local repair incubation businesses
and empowerment cafe members
undertaking and overtaking cooperatives
for ecopolitical health-wealth restorations.

Healthy keys to continually growing
Potlatch CoHousing Cafes
are those held by community WinWin
outdoor-indoor entertainment innovators,
street clowns and village green sages,
parental fools and innocent teacher healers
in love with therapeutic life.

Covenants to CareGive Children
and their cooperative co-housed families
coordinated and ecotherapeutically operated
by established hospitality foundations
like local cooperative-restorative climate-care governments
and nonprofit empowerment missioned organizations
committed to potlatch provide
investments and therapeutic non-violent staff
and volunteer intern cooperative familycare members
to coordinate co-housing residents
and neighborhood transporters
and young cafe and garden after-school volunteers.

Covenants for Healing
could grow cooperatively owned therapeutic cafes
and gardens
and multicultural multigenerational homes
accessible co-housing options
for nurturing community residents

So repairing,
rather than discarding,
people,
plants,
and things,

Incubating interdependent potlatch stewards
becoming post-millennial,
WinWin nutritional
for covenant-holders
and covenant-constituents
with secular-sacred dipolar co-arising faith
in PositivEnergy Democracy
for growing neighborhood
Potlatch Cafes
in CoRedemptive Gardens.

With warm hope
you are enjoying this child empowering day

WiseElder Childhood Conversations

I refuse to learn a difference
between EcoHabitat
and God’s Creative Reign At Hand;

between secular EarthDay sacraments of wonder
and sacred ecology of deep dense awe,
both within WinWin GaiaEarth’s
PositivEnergy Proposal

[Well…
more of a Promised Healthy Climate handshake,
really]

I cannot,
with full integrity,
extend invitations
that sound like threats,
to WinWin cooperative children
requiring they change their innocent minds
about not settling for Win/Lose competitions
between their sacred LeftBrain body identities
and their inside RightBrain EarthSoul
memories.

[OK, for the kids,
Dick is Green
and ambidextrous LeftBrain ecological,
while Jane is more ultra-violet
and RightBrain intuitive
musing
mystical
WinWin prime relational,
more matriotic EarthSoul
and not so much patriotic
Red White and Blue Dick]

For here is where
innocence of RightBrain dominant childhood
double-bound in WiseElder pre-verbal DNA scripts
listen for teachers and preachers
across Beloved Nondual Muses of past voices,
dipolar, not necessarily bipolar,
co-arising Original PositivEnergy,
democratic EarthTrusting CoRelational,
creolizing nutritional intent.

[Yikes,
I was just thinking of Tarzan
singing and swinging some gospel
while Jane swings and dances
through their colorful
fresh forest.]

Original Creator Intent
toward transubstantiation
of RightBrain Beauty-Yin
transforming LeftBrain dominance
into Yang with Yin Regimes
for CoOperative Revolutionary Truths
secularly resilient
deductive productive WinWin systems

[And also sacredly resonant,
induced feelings
visions
voices
singing multicultural nested networks
polypathicLeft deep listening
with polyphonicRight]

Regenerate cooperative childhoods
toward WiseElder restorations.

[Humane liberating health
as also divine conservation of eco-wealth]
