Document The Grand Cathedral-Building Project Document 2004-01-03 2008-03-05 2004-01-03
  The grand project we've all been looking for is to make the question, "Where are we going as a people and what is your part in it?" answerable by yourself. Some thoughts along that line follow. I know what I'm here to do: to listen to the silence, and to listen to others who listen to the silence.
Document You cocooned in moving matter Document 2004-01-19 2004-02-16 2004-01-19
  An incantation for those travelling the lands where the most significant human structures are strips of pavement (or aeroplanes, or trains...). The inspiration for this occurred when crossing (on foot) the College Avenue overpass across Interstate 8. I was a sole pedestrian above ten lanes of highway traffic (I recounted the lanes: approx. 17, two of which belong to a less busy road parallel to the interstate) walking along a bridge about six lanes wide. On the lane closest to the sidewalk, traffic entering the highway is slow or stationary, and I can gaze at the occupants through their windshields.
Document Glints lead to vision Document 2004-01-30 2004-10-10 2004-01-30
  Written after looking over the Norton Anthology of Poetry, and getting a general impression of how what people have written poetry about and how they've written about it has changed over time. It also incorporates a thought summing my experience in the summer of 2003, but which also applies to more than that.

Document Blue Chill Document 2004-02-06 2004-02-06 2004-02-06
  How landscape affects behavior. If I could make it interesting for us both I would/will continue the trip along the running route. I open the iron grated door step onto cement walk. Survey dawn over Seminole Dr. Not drawn to walk, I return inside, knowing, I'd be walking were I in ________. Dented glass -> ocean. Blue chill plain -> dawn sky.
Document Freighter Travel Document 2004-02-16 2008-03-05 2004-02-16
  Travel the world by ship, not by plane, and not by cruise ship. I had heard of this, and searched for information on line, but until seeing an article by Alison DeRosa in the Travel section of the 2004-02-15 San Diego Union Tribune, I remained in the dark. Here's some links to get us started.
Document First (?) International Carfree Poetry Exhibition Document 2004-02-18 2008-03-05 2004-02-18

Document Vision Research Project: overview and methodology Document 2004-02-25 2007-10-05 2004-02-25
  The abstract concept of vision (defined here as a projection of one's current self into an imagined future) is presented, and reasons why the concept is of interest are discussed. A research program for improving (1) our understanding of visions and (2) our ability to express and share visions is outlined.

Document Ken Wilber: what he means to Colin Document 2004-03-07 2008-03-05 2004-03-07

Document Analysis: Ten steps to a new vision Document 2004-03-08 2005-04-02 2004-03-08
  *Ten steps to a new vision* expresses a vision of a mass dialog that addresses "Where are we going as a people, and what is my part in it?" *Ten steps* is targeted at a more general audience than is *Four men in a room*. At the same time, *Ten steps* retains language and themes specific to the author's outlook, and is a sort of self- and subculture-satire.
Document Ira Progoff: what he means to me Document 2004-03-08 2008-03-05 2004-03-08
  I mention Progoff so much, I thought I should have a page explaining a bit about what I mean by Progoff.

Document Carless and Carfree Document 2004-05-21 2004-05-21 2004-05-21
  Marylaine Block's "Carless and Carfree" column from September 1996. I copied it here to format it a bit better. She didn't want the whole thing here, because she wanted people to visit her site... but the format on her site is hard to read... just so you know I'm being arrogant and disrespectful (and figuring nothing really bad will happen...). The original is at: http://marylaine.com/myword/cars.html

Document Carfree Movement opinion piece for San Diego State Daily Aztec Document 2004-05-23 2008-03-05 2004-05-23
  This details the process and results of attempting to become an opinion writer for San Diego State's _Daily Aztec_ paper. It includes tips on opinion writing for campus papers, the two versions of the carfree movement op-ed piece I submitted, and carfree yahoogroup members' comments on an early draft of the first version. I conclude with some thoughts about what I learned from the experience, and what I and others might take away from it for next time.
Document Letter to Editor re: "free market" Document 2004-05-24 2008-03-05 2004-05-24
  A response to some foolishness. (should I be spending my time on this?) Actually, if I take it seriously and treat everyone with respect I'd delete the preceeding and simply write: Response to editorial with highlighted text (what is the techinical term for that set apart and bolded text?),
