Story

Resilience is a deep-rooted sense of joy and purpose that will not be defeated by any adversity.

 

            “The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.”  Martin Luther King, Jr

 

Hold On to core beliefs, values and ideas that serve you well.

Let Go of beliefs, values and ideas that don’t serve you well.

Move On to replace what you left behind with what you hope for.

“Resiliency: How to Bounce Back Faster, Stronger, Smarter”  by Tessa Albert Warschaw and Dee Barlow, MasterMedia Limited, New York, 1995

 

Editor-In-Chief of ODE magazine Jurriaan Kamp provides a huge WOW in his Letter from the Editor. "RESILIENCE is cropping up with increasing frequency as the next step in thinking about SUSTAINABILITY."

"RESILIENCE is a dynamic concept focused on incorporating inevitable CHANGE. RESILIENCE is about how systems respond and how we can support such responses."

Kamp goes on to say that "RESILIENCE is very different from SUSTAINABILITY. Sustainable, after all, means 'capable of being maintained'(!). SUSTAINABILITY features static control. RESILIENCE is about DYNAMIC RESPONSE."

He adds one more thought: "Resilience systems have a capacity to handle disruptions (change) and reorganize themselves while preserving their function, structure and identity."

Log Roll

Words and music by Richard H. Hill

 

Big ol’ turtle sat on a log

In the middle of a puddle in the middle of a bog

Soakin’ up sun in the early morn,

Shuffles his feet as the log slowly turns

 

Life is good, life is sweet

Sun so warm settin’ on that tree

Keep your mind on where you wanna be

And let that log roll on

 

Turtle’s got a friend joins him on that log

In the middle of a puddle in the middle of a bog

Lured by the sun and the casual pace

Climbs right up and takes his place

 

Two more turtles spied that log

In the middle of a puddle in the middle of a bog

Climbin aboard, they caused too much spin

Dumped every one of those turtles back in

 

You might think what a shame, what a pity

Life rolls over and you’re back in the gritty

But if you’ve set your mind where you wanna be

You get dumped then you climb back on

 

Life is good, life is sweet

Sun so warm settin’ on that tree

Keep your mind on where you wanna be

You get dumped then you climb back on

 

Big ol’ turtle gets back on that log

In the middle of a puddle in the middle of a bog

Soakin’ up sun in the early morn,

Shuffles his feet as the log slowly turns
