An expanding economy
on a shrinking planet
has no future.
But village gardeners
in a global network
feed wisely smaller
human populations
whose permaculture base
of wind and solar power
can safely adjust
to this changing Earth
by slowing their pace
and growing their talents
with self-restraint
for a long and happy life
in peace and balance.
