{inspiration} the self express

yesterday, i visited my amazing cousin duncan...


duncan just graduated from college, embarked on world travels, and has now returned to take a powerful journey across the country via a solar-powered veggie oil bus...



he is part of a group of incredible young artists and thinkers who purchased and converted the bus in june. they describe themselves as:

* transportation to a sustainable future
* a grass-roots vehicle for creativity and change
* exploring solutions to the environmental and social problems we face

the self express came to my little town yesterday and spent the morning at the farmer's market sharing their gifts, making music, and connecting with the community here.

i was absolutely enthralled with the beauty and intention of this creation...











the joy, excitement, and pride i feel about this project could make me explode.

my gypsy soul sings, my artist heart rejoices, my earth mama mind spins wildly.

what a valuable vision to create. such wonderful work, my friends!

That is so awesome!!! I want to get on board right this instance! How cool that they converted the bus... I mean, really, really cool. I bet they introduced a bunch of people to that option! Wow, that would be such an adventure :)
