West Marin Blogs

Welcome to Richard James's website about how art can speak louder than words about litter in the natural environment.

Elizabeth Whitney lives in Point Reyes Station, California. She has been associated with the 13 Moon Calendar Movement and the work of Jose Arguelles since Harmonic Convergence in 1987. Her galactic signature is Blue Solar Eagle: “Power of Vision”. She wrote a weekly column for the Malibu Surfside News from 2001- 2005; those columns appear under “wakingwaves.wordpress.com.” She welcomes any opportunity to share these writings on the Internet or in print. Please communicate your interest in this. You may quote from these essays with attribution. Thank you.
