I've been building the web presence for the Fetzer-funded project, the Powers of Place Initiative, for almost a year now and we are finally ready to launch! Check it out: www.powersofplace.com
This project is dear to my heart, given how profoundly my life has been effected by the sense of place - coming up through young adulthood by the love of the NorthEast Kingdom in Vermont, calmed and grounded by the expanse of Balboa Park in San Diego, in love with the contours of the green and pleasant land of England's south coast, and now blessed by the sacred Mt Tamalpais here in the San Francisco bay area.
How have the powers of place effected you and/or your work? If this is a subject that interests you, you might want to join this group in doing serious research and dedicated inquiry into the phenomena.
