Subject:  holiday greetings - virtual gifts - need any help?

dear metasofa friends & family,

best wishes for the holidays and new year!

here are some virtual metasofa gifts for the holiday season and onward...

metasofa sun-moon-earth clock (aka moon-clock)

metasofa timebank (aka tucson time traders)

via the timebank, i've been providing help with internet and computer stuff, photography, music, electronics, bike repair, home handy-work, gardening, watering, house & pet sitting...

currently due to a small financial emergency, i'm also looking for a bit of paid work.  please let me know if you'd like help with any of the above, thanks!

dear metasofa friends & family,

just following up on my december holiday flyer (at and forwarded below)

huge thanks for the paid work and gifts that many of you have so kindly provided!  with your help, i've succeeded in meeting expenses thru the end of february, and have been able to continue other important but unpaid work.

for march and april, i need to raise about as much again, and hopefully things will get easier after that...

would you please keep me in mind, and let me know if there's anything i can do for you.  (and also if you're interested in the metasofa projects, links below)

dear metasofa friends & family,

may there be bees on earth, and may bees be with you!

i hope you will enjoy this new webpage re world peace and ecology, the internet and linguistics, and possibly spiritual consciousness.

blue bees - world bees  -

    with a gathering of bees from all around the world  (really, hundreds of words for "bee" in various languages, with links to the "bee" articles in 100+ language-culture sites across wikipedia, see below),

    and a small sound piece called "blue bees"  (possible music genres - art, alternative, blues, easy listening, electronic, industrial, meditative, new age, religious, soundtrack, techno, trance :)

happy solstice full moon holidays, and best wishes for the new year!

e-love, chris
