    Hello Paul,

    Thank you for these SPLAB updates. I’m hoping you might be willing to post about the new Cave Moon Press anthology, “Broken Circles–Poems about Food,” released in September 2011.

Already, locally, we’ve organized venues at local cafes and schools and I’m wondering if there might be ways to work together in the coming months. Would love to hear from you and take care–Denise

What end does politics serve? Surely it must serve ends beyond itself. Why seek greater bioregional autonomy? For self-determination. Yes, but what purpose in turn shall that value serve? None some may say, it’s self-justifying. But then it becomes an absolute unto itself which can be used to justify many different things, some questionable. Why not come right out at the beginning and say what you’re really for?
The primary purpose of seeking greater bioregional identity and autonomy is to serve the life of the place and its people as a whole. Indeed, the primary purpose of Politics is to serve the life of the place and its people on many levels in an equitable and sustainable way.
