Just Enough

Azby Brown is an artist, writer, and teacher who grew up in New Orleans and lives in Japan where he works to help direct our global society towards sustainable living. His new book Just Enough, is about the traditional Japanese culture that kept long term sustainability in mind. There are lessons in it for all those of us who can see that intentional, thoughtful, hands-on living offers values that are most frequently lost in the scurry of our high pressure internet age. You can read an excerpt here: Bent by the Sun, Lessons from Japan's ancient traditions of sustainability.
Azby's simple but elegant line drawings illustrate the concepts presented.

Today in the Clear Spring School wood shop, the 4th 5th and 6th grade students continued working on their travel journals and began work on their looms. The high school classes are off from school today following their weeklong travel to New Orleans. What a wonderful school to be associated with! Make, fix, create.
