(one of Michka's transiency_scenarios)

It is 8 am, and I am just emerging from my morning meditation. I can feel the energy flowing freely around my body, and it feels reaaaally good. The taste in my mouth is no longer acidic, as it was the few last mornings. This Ayurveda mix of herbs advised by Anil seems to work well.

I finished my meditation by recalling some of the memories from my most recent travels. The beautiful countryside of Slovenia around the Rolling Hedgehog Center for Sustainable Living, the seaside sunset after a nice chat at the Degrowth Summit in the South of France, the fireplace evenings spent trying out Sustainable Strategy Games with Schumacher College students, and all the nice encounters during the long Feral Transport trips between those locations.

In less than two hours, people from everywhere around the world will ring the bell to join in the CommonTech Annual Meetup. During three days, we will share our latest developments on simple, supportive & empowering technologies and implement some of them in the CommonTech Garden.

We will also see how some of these could be repackaged to be sold for industrial scale applications during our “Feeding the Common” evening chats. I am especially looking forward to see how Christopher's gasifier-powered electric bike can help us reach the city center without effort with a few twigs from the Jerusalem Artichoke Hedge.

In two weeks, I will Feral-ride again to Amsterdam to present the CommonTech Network at the Emerging Appropriate Technologies summit. I will stay at FoAM, and take some time in the Urban Wild Forest Gardens brought out of the ground quite a few years ago by Cocky and Theun.

I open my eyes. I can smell of the freshly baked five-cereals bread, and hear the chat of the cooking team preparing breakfast for the Meetup attendants. I slowly bet up, stretch my arms, and get down the stairs to greet and thank them, thinking about which taste of home-made jam I will be spreading on my first toast.
