The vibes were fabulous. What struck me most was the quality of the goods and services on exhibit. It looks like all these green concepts that've been floating around for the last 30 years, have jelled. A lot of the green stuff is working. There was hardly any crap, in contrast to any other event I've been to. The natural fabrics and clothing were beautiful. Hemp clothing has come a long way from the early crude products. Elegant hemp shirts, all natural fibers, organic everything from coffee to cotton. Solar power, green building materials, socially conscious investing, tons of great food, 100s of exhibitors, the unifying theme being treating the earth with respect and living in harmony with the living planet. Amen!
It's now a few days later and in retrospect what happened was that the green-conscious people have discovered our building books. We were mobbed. We sold almost 150 copies of Home Work. It was great to watch all these young people pouring over our books. A new audience.
