            Survival in Amsterdam in the early 80's meant walking the docks looking for a job. I worked in Edam through the winter and spring painting the Vriendschap, directing a crew of young Dutch "zeelieden" whom I taught to be ships' painters. We stepped the masts in Monnickendam. "Welkom aan boord."
My original youthful survival strategy of learning the primal skills of fishing and farming lead me to Wengen, Switzerland in the late 80's to work for a farmer haying at a steep angle for 5 months. The location is circled in blue. Wild flowers and grass. Scythe, pitchfork and rake. And a motorized contraption that also cut the hay. It felt like being frozen on the side of a huge wave with heaven all around.

Celebrate Life - The San Bushmen of the Kalahari - Visualmyth

The Tribal Trust Foundation presents a unique look at the vibrant and ancient culture of the San Bushmen of the Kalahari. Original music recorded live in the Kalahari desert. Created by Patrick Burke. Powered by ONADIME. © 2007 The Tribal Trust Foundation. 
"When I did some research for this video my first instinct was to use the San cave paintings as the focus. But the San feel that the cave paintings are too commercial now, the spirit is elsewhere. I decided to use the San themselves as the focus. Using Photoshop and rotoscoping the original footage (with permission) from Vanishing Cultures: Bushmen of the Kalahari to create a type of animated cave painting. So that the energy of the San resonates in the Digital Age."

"In a world of complex and continuing problems, in a world full of frustrations and irritations, America's leadership must be guided by the lights of learning and reason - or else those who confuse rhetoric with reality and the plausible with the possible will gain the popular ascendancy with their seemingly swift and simple solutions to every world problem." JFK. Remarks prepared for delivery at the Trade Mart in Dallas. November 22, 1963.
