Geology (volcano in action) workshop, Quito 2005 (SEED volunteers from USA)
What makes ones home sweet ?
To me, MANY things!
Houston is anyone and everyone's playground. The eclectic streets of Montrose are the home of the wanderer: unique homes, old roads, and charming cafes. The nightlife guru finds excitement in openings and events of lounges sprinkled across Washington and Midtown. An artist finds inspiration at the Menil, Rothko, HMFA, sculpture gardens, and other sights for the creative eye. The familyman, scholar, artchitect and foodie all find an inviting seat at the table of the one-of-a-kind home of Houston.

30 students and 5 teachers were involved in this workshop.
Home sweet home.
Close your eyes. Imagine this: someone you know has been given the most palatial, the most incredibly beautiful house. For free. No strings attached. From this point forward, that will be the person’s home.
Imagine people tearing down this house piece by piece, treating the house simultaneously as a personal bank machine and a dumping ground; staking claim to it for profit and greed.
Imagine it was your house. What would you do?
When I think about my home, I like to think about the reasons I would like to call it home. Is it a place? Is it the people in it? Or the events that have happened that bring the sense of home to my mind? I think it is all of the above.
My home is my place of tranquility, where the days stresses and worries get to go fade away. I know that when I am home I feel safe, happy and loved.
I am a citizen of the world and planet earth is my home. Political and administrative frontiers are fake. I feel we are all from one planet - earth - regardless of our race or origin. I am not in favor of removing all differences between us but rather celebrate them. And when you think of it earth is a small and limited space. Just realize that we were 300 millions a 1,000 years ago and we are now 7 billions !? Watch this... and think of the potential consequences.
