Transition Culture

An Evolving Exploration into the Head, Heart and Hands of Energy Descent

Transition Culture has moved

I no longer blog on this site. You can now find me, my general blogs, and the work I am doing researching my forthcoming book on imagination, on my new blog.

Logging Off For the Summer…

Transition Culture will be closing down for most of August as I stop work and take time out with my family, sit on a beach in Cornwall for a while, visit family, leave my laptop at home, and try not to think about Transition very much (well I can try).  The last few days has been a wrapping up of various things, including the thesis I have been doing for the last 3 years (alongside everything else…) which (pause for fireworks, dancing elephants and great plumes of multi-coloured bunting) I handed in today (see left).  Don’t have to even think about it once for the next 2 months.  Thanks everyone  for all your comments and support over the year so far, much appreciated.  Have a good few weeks, normal service will be resumed here first week of September, when we’ll be into full-on Pattern Language writing mode, and other exciting new developments to be revealed when activities resume!

YES, YES, YES: fireworks, dancing elephants and great plumes of multi-coloured bunting!! So glad to hear you’ve turned the dissertation in and are taking a summmer break, Rob. May you and your family enjoy a truly refreshing and joyful time. Your blog is such a source of information and inspiration for us in our local transition group. We cheer you on and encourage you to incorporate sustainability deeply into your own life!

Many congratulations. I work in the Uni Library and I have seen you working hard over the summer. I haven’t wanted to disturb you from your studies.

I like the pic of you handing it in, I am sure it will be an interesting read.
