A vintage morsel of Delight & a sip of sparkling Clarity to share with my Best Wishes for 2016.

The new year is nigh and I am resting a bit and preparing for what comes next. Edging myself gently to something that will feel relevant and I hope can in some way be commensurate with the challenge.

When in that percolating state I often find myself tidying things. It’s a way of ‘doing’ that allows a sense of purpose to emerge. My focus is superficially on the task and, at depths unknown, a creative coalescing of ideas is occurring that I anticipate with a strange enthusiasm.

It was as I was tidying up my cupboard today and discarding old DVDs that I came across this gem. I had to watch a little bit and then I had to watch it all.

It goes for 45 minutes. You may have seen it before? It’s been around for quite a while now. Even so I commend it to you. It is the work of Robert Newman and this one is called The Story Of Oil.

I loved the oh-so-relevant finish – on just what to do with our great ideas.

Happy New Year. In it may we see more of the beautiful, creative, intelligent genius surging through our collective hopes, wishes and voices. May our actions steer our course firmly to a Safe Climate and continue to unlock the fully scaled up Sustainability Renaissance that so tantalises and inspires us.


About Giselle Wilkinson - 4allsentientbeings

Environmental conservation, community and cooperatives have been enduring threads in my life. Promoting sustainable lifestyles and more lately, focussing on restoring a Safe Climate, is work expressed predominantly through organisations such as The Sustainable Living Foundation (which I co-founded in 1999 - current President) and the others listed as links below. I am some way into a professional doctorate with MIECAT on "Mobilising Whole Communities to Restore a Sustainable Environment" and have in recent years moved into MURUNDAKA – a (more) sustainable, (more) affordable co-housing community / housing cooperative in Heidelberg, Melbourne (for which I gave up my co-op house of 19 years including veggie garden and small orchard) and it's great. I'm also a mum of two grown up daughters and have five step children.
