CULTURAL CREATIVE

Are you a Cultural Creative?

( I borrowed heavily from a piece written by Nick Kettles for the Ecologist magazine, which is a fabulous magazine)

A growing group of people in the west are referred to as ‘cultural creatives’-people who combine a serious concern for their inner life with a strong passion for social activism. Cultural creatives care deeply about the destruction of nature; are willing to pay higher taxes or spend money for legitimate green goods, but at the same time also have a intense interest in spiritual and psychological development; in the importance of maintaining relationships, and in helping others make changes that are pleasant and fulfilling.

There’s no doubt that it’s better to live in a society where people are awake and taking action rather than inert and unconscious.

Happy July 4th!

I love celebrating certain holidays and July 4th is one of my favorites, marking the beginning of summer for me.

Over the years, I have looked out for the kind of decorations I would like to do if I was giving  a party and here are three of my favorites:

Store bought flags in different sizes shown with vintage blue medecine bottles.

This one has a frenchie vibe to it but love all the great red white blue colors mixed up together.

Various red white blue flags hung draped in a informal manner on this lovely porch.
