Dear Open Spaceniks,
On the eve of the lush and delightful-sounding Florida WOsonOs, below is the link to a video I took on my phone of Harrison walking the opening circle of the last day of a different lively gathering, which was called "Connecting for Community" and took place in Cincinnati a few weeks ago.
"We work together sharpening our tools, learning, challenging and encouraging each other, and in the diversity of our backgrounds, creating our own community. It is inspiring and invigorating work for each and every participant. At Connecting for Community we find our own voice weaving with the experience and grace of other creating a whole fabric of relationships that goes with us out into our own communities to continue our work changing the world."Here's the link: https://vimeo.com/65488850
Although it's rough, I think it's still fun to watch at least a moment or two of what it looks like to walk that opening circle with more than 25 years of it in your bones. It is also pretty great to see how people leaped up to write their sessions, as soon as he invited us to!
(please note - I've found that the echo-y sound is best understood if you can listen through earphones ;-))Sending warm wishes for a rich and deep and surprising time to everyone at the international WOSonOs, and to the rest of us, too!
love from Seattle, Christy
May we on a few days get to watch Suzanne Daigle walking the circle on the virtual space of Wosonos2013 in Florida? http://wosonos2013.crowdvine.com/pages/virtual_space …
What is the meaning of cooking and eating for the community and the individual?
Is cooking a political act?
How does cooking reflect our attitude toward life and the world?
"I think the most beautiful – and for your group, perhaps most powerful – is the flocking behavior of Starlings (birds). Check out www.youtube.com/watch?v=XH-

@Eleder_BuMwww.keepturningleft.co.uk for more bird films. The starlings are an astonishing thing to see - Near Oxford - England. This was filmed at an RSPB reserve called Otmoor. It is the most remarkable thing I have ever seen - and as a video camerman I have seen some pretty amazing things.
The music is from a companny called CSS Music. The track is "soaring with the sun" - .
I have just received this
Hi, Dylan. I got your contact information from your beautiful YouTube video published in February 2007.
Audubon Magazine published a wonderful article about starling flock behavior earlier this year: http://www.audubonmagazine.org/features0903/truenature.html
My favorite segment from the article:Like drivers on a freeway, starlings dont appear to mind having neighbors nearby on their sides—or above and below, for that matter—as long as they have open space ahead. That makes sense, since the presence of a clear path in the direction of travel minimizes the likelihood of collisions should the birds need to shift their course abruptly, as is likely when a falcon attacks. But whats really nifty about this spatial asymmetry is that the researchers have been able to use it to calculate the number of neighbors to which each starling pays close attention—a quantified elaboration of Pottss chorus line idea. By looking at correlations between the movements of neighboring starlings, they can show that each bird always pays attention to the same number of neighbors, whether they´re closer or farther away. How many neighbors is that? Six or seven, says Cavagna, who points out that starlings in flocks can almost always see many more nearby birds— but the number may be closely tied to birds cognitive ability.The direction of the flock can be coordinated by each birds tracking six or seven other birds. Remarkable. This is a very different kind of cognitive skill.
