By the way, the first monthly meeting for the South Coast Permaculture Guild 
will be a very special topic, with a very special speaker. The speaker is 
Gene Hoffman, speaking on Compassionate Listening, something she has been 
involved with for the past 35 years, using it to help resolve conflicts 
around the world. Our meeting will be on Tues, Jan 18, and I hope you are 
able to put it on your calendars. We felt it was very appropriate to start 
the new year and new decade with this kind of topic, how we can "hear" 
others, even when our own perspective of things seems the right one. Those 
of us who are involved in environmental issues many times appear 
confrontational, and lose possible new "ears", not because we don't have 
something valuable to share, but because of our presentation.
