Green Diva Lisa and her traveling boots: part 1

0 1

I’ve had the good fortune to travel a lot for work and play. This past year I hung out in my hometown in North Jersey so I could work with my sister, Green Diva Meg.  One of the upsides has been spending time in the woods of my youth.  And it’s been even more fun with my new Patagonia boots from our friends at PlanetShoes.com. This photo was taken in the Tourne, which is a Morris County Park that I can get into from Birchwood Lake, just a short run from our other sister’s house.

One day after coming out from a long run in the woods, I ran into my first steady from 5th grade who lived up the street from me and also grew up playing in these woods. He bought his Dad’s house and raised his boys there.  I expressed how cool it was that his kids got to grow up playing in the same woods. Which by the way, haven’t changed that much in the last 40 years except for the lake the beavers recently built deep in the middle of the woods behind his house. He told me “They don’t play in the woods.” I was shocked, I have such great memories.  He said that the parents don’t let them play in the woods any more because of bears and ticks. So sad. I knew about the bears and ticks, but I couldn’t stay out of the woods. I have a Norman Rockwell memory of growing up in our little town, and the woods are a big part of that memory.

Stay tuned and I will show you were else I take these boots. Feets don’t fail me now.

A Fierce Green Fire

Spanning 50 years of grassroots and global activism, this Sundance documentary brings to light the vital stories of the environmental movement where people fought – and succeeded – against enormous odds. From halting dams in the Grand Canyon to fighting toxic waste at Love Canal; from Greenpeace to Chico Mendes; from climate change to the promise of transforming our civilization, A Fierce Green Fire is “nothing less than the history of environmentalism itself.” (Los Angeles Times). Official Selection Sundance Film Festival.

Occupy Love

Join acclaimed director Velcrow Ripper (Scared Sacred, Fierce Light) on a journey deep inside the revolution of the heart that is erupting around the planet, as he asks the question, “How could the crisis we are facing become a love story?”

Occupy Love explores the growing realization that the dominant system of power is failing to provide us with health, happiness or meaning. The old paradigm that concentrates wealth, founded on the greed of the few, is causing economic and ecological collapse. The resulting crisis has become the catalyst for a profound awakening:  millions of people are deciding that enough is enough –  the time has come to create a new world, a world that works for all life.

The film connects the dots in this era of rapidly evolving social change, featuring captivating insider scenes from the Egyptian Revolution, the Indignado uprising in Spain, Occupy Wall Street in New York, the environmental movement and beyond. Woven throughout the action oriented backbone of the film is a deep exploration of public love, and compelling stories of an emerging new paradigm. It features some of the world’s key visionaries on alternative systems of economics, sustainability, and empathy, including Naomi Klein, Bill McKibben, Jeremy Rifkin, and bell hooks.

Occupy Love is a moving, transformative, heartfelt film, featuring Ripper’s signature stunning visuals and rich soundscapes. A powerful cinematic experience leaves viewers inspired.
