From the recording Log Roll

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.

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."

Lyrics

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
