This is the first XLt newsletter for 09.
And while we don’t care much for the gregorian calendar, we’ll take this
opportunity to wish you all the needed strength + élan on yur inspired
paths and time travellings!
From our current angle, it’s looking like “09″ is the year to fully
upgrade to a more sustainable co-existence of desires, and perhaps that
means cutting out for new frontiers while holding dearly to all our
nourishing wells and passions! And if that means some very Tangible Acts
NOW, So Be It !

tangible, sustainable, distributable, rhizomable.
