We don’t think it much matters who we are, but for the curious and the unsatisfied, we’ve been educated on the streets and in the Ivy League, in Iowa cornfields and Florida swamps, Texas plains and Persian countryside, German forests and Ecuadorian mountains.
We’ve sat under Japanese cherry blossoms and Californian redwoods, oaks larger than houses and ethereal banyans. We’ve collected oldskool jungle, gypsy jazz, folk, hip-hop, bluegrass, reggae and classical quartets. We’ve moved in circles of Zen, Advaita Vedanta, Sufism, beer-snob barrooms, research labs, survivalists, drug dens and churches of the Lord.
We love literature and art, we love philosophy and science. We’ve studied business, engineering, administration and nature. We’ve studied our hearts and made a practice of listening to what we’re a part of, what composes us and what we compose. We’ve dug ditches for wages and run record labels. We’ve taken blankets to bums and poems to a billionaire who asked for more. We’ve rehabbed birds and set them off into the yonder, buried others we arrived too late to help.
We straddle the academy and the street, the rural and the urban, the physical and the spiritual, logic and devotion and all of the glorious ways in which they intertwine.
We want your passion infused with attention and affection for the wild blue orb known as Earth, our source, our being, our home.
