Just got a notice that a John Munroe had joined and wondered if it was you. Can't be two "Tokyo, eco-entrepreneurs" can there :-)

"Love the photo of Tara :-). Reminds me of the story of the guy who was smuggling wheelbarrows (or bicycle, depending on the story. The empty wheelbarrow on top of the rock being "inspected" by the inspector."
"This is a good summary of the issues. The best informed people I know follow a variety of news sources, from different countries and political positions. Always a certain amount of reading between the lines and working things out both from what is…"
"Thanks Nati. I agree. I don't think it is a question of taking sides but more one of seeing the upside and downside to idealism. A dharma teacher of mine once pointed out to me that idealism is often motivated by hate more than by love. It can…"
"Reading from a woman's point of view, I certainly find myself siding with Sophia. She appears to have accepted/ taken on the role of creating practical support for her husband's idealism. She must have loved him a great deal and believed…"
