Eco-village Coopérative d'habitat convivial - village éco-spirituel - Ecologie des relations, écologie de l'argent, écologie de l'environnement L'émergence de la conscience écologique remet en cause l'individualisme forcené de ces dernières décennies. Nous prenons la mesure de notre communauté de destins et de notre responsabilité envers le vivant sous toutes ses formes. Une frange croissante de la population explore un nouvel art de vivre, avec la volonté assumée de transformer la société en commençant par se transformer soi-même. Redonner de la valeur à l'être plutôt qu'à l'avoir, à la coopération plutôt qu'à la compétition, à la préservation plutôt qu'à la prédation de la nature, ce changement est à l'origine d'innovations dans tous les domaines: éducation alternative, écoconstruction, covoiturage, agroécologie, économie sociale et solidaire.

Right-brained Writing Prompts Writing Prompts: For the Right Brain inspiring students to be recklessly creative when beginning new writing In 2001, we launched the WritingFix website with twenty-one interactive prompts. Many of those original prompts became our "Right-brained Prompt Collection," which has always been housed on this page. WritingFix believes this: No one writes with just the right side of his/her brain. We do believe this too: Ideas that spark a writer's inspiration can start on the right-side of the brain. And don't neglect the left-side of your brain! During the 2011-12 school year, we will be revising all of the prompts on this page so that they all feature a mentor text as part of the learning process!

Go Into The Story | The craft of screenwriting, movies, Hollywood, and the creative life 10 Most Fascinating Tombs in the World There is perhaps nothing else so distinctive of the condition and character of a people as the method in which they treat their dead. - William Tegg, 1876 Throughout the history of human civilization, different cultures mourn and treat the dead differently. Some, like Tibetan Buddhists, have no use for burials as they dispose the dead by feeding corpses to vultures or by burning them in funeral pyres. Most cultures, however, show their respect by burying the dead, sometimes in complex and ornate tombs, crypts, and catacombs. This article takes a look at ten of the most fascinating final resting places around the world, from the largest prehistoric burial mound in Europe to the the tombs of pharaohs to the most beautiful mausoleum in the world: Newgrange The burial mound of Newgrange in County Meath, Ireland is definitely one of the most impressive prehistoric monuments in the world. Newgrange is impressive: the circular mound is 250 feet (76 m) across and 40 feet (12 m) high. Tana Toraja

Storytelling | Il menestrello 2.0 Era il mio primo giorno da studente fuorisede nella città eterna. L’ora di pranzo si avvicinava, e come tutti i giorni ero pronto a sedermi in tavola per gustare le pietanze della cucina lucana preparate da mamma. C’era un piccolo inconveniente, mancavano sia le pietanze lucane che mia madre! La situazione era aggravata dalla mia totale incapacità di cucinare qualsiasi piatto. Avrei potuto reperire alcune ricette sul web, ma sette anni fa non tutti i siti contemplavano la preparazione di piatti veloci per cuochi alle prime armi, tantomeno i social network. Per descrivere l’iniziativa voglio partire da questa frase:Visto che buono è un sito di social cooking che ti fa scoprire tante buone ricette semplici e veloci e consigli utili per i tuoi piatti. Visto che buono è una community definita di social cooking – raggiungibile al sito – attraverso la quale è possibile reperire ed offrire spunti, consigli e ricette per preparare i propri piatti.

Voleur de secrets Okay, this rat is leaving the ship. I’m not going to delete it, but I’m not going to use this blog anymore for a while. Maybe later. But after I made that post considering leaving it another 10 people started following, and I am too anxious as a person to feel comfortable with having a personal blog/scrapbook followed by this large a crowd. I’ll probably follow a bunch of people I follow here now and should be easy enough to recognise (I think) but I might just message you a hello from my new tumblr if I remember to! Hmm. “ The possibilities of pleasure seemed that morning so enormous and so various that to have only a moth’s part in life, and a day moth’s at that, appeared a hard fate, and his zest in enjoying his meagre opportunities to the full, pathetic. — from The death of the moth - Virginia Woolf

English 50 Exercises for Story Writers English 50 – Intro to Creative Writing: Exercises for Story Writers Basic Theory: What is a short story? Short stories have a narrator; that is, someone tells the story; have at least one character in them; have some action occur (or perhaps fails to occur); take place somewhere; that is, there is a setting for the action; and someone either learns something or fails to learn something (theme).With these five characteristics in mind, we can create an almost endless supply of exercises to help sharpen our techniques of story telling. Narrative Voice Twenty or so years ago, voice was the "rite of passage" into a successful writing career. Nevertheless, a narrative voice that sounds like it could be anyone's voice or is bland and boring, or riddled with pointless clichés will fail to capture and hold the reader's attention. NOTE: It is quite common for writers in the early stages of their careers to imitate the writers they are reading or admire most. The T.S. Go back to the previous page?

PostSecret 7 Habits of Serious Writers — Aliventures - StumbleUpon Image credit: aless&ro With thanks to Michael Pollock for the article suggestion and title. I’ve been writing, on and off, since my early teens – but it’s only in the last three years that I’ve really taken my writing seriously. It’s made a dramatic difference. In the past few years, I’ve been lucky enough to work alongside all sorts of great writers, during my MA in Creative Writing, and in my freelancing. Habit #1: Writing To be a serious writer, you have to write. Yes, that’s obvious. Maybe you’re one of them. Unfortunately, you won’t get any better at writing unless you actually write. I know it’s tough. You can do it. Writing “regularly” is key here. Get Serious Write. Habit #2: Focus Maybe you’ve planned to write for two hours on a Saturday morning. Writing is hard work – and you’ll come up with all sorts of distractions to keep you from it. Serious writers, though, know how to help themselves focus. Habit #3: Reading By reading, you’ll see how other writers tackle similar problems.
