Upside-down, The Good Newsletter 2020 – Week 33

The weekly interactive newsletter sent out by Plukrijp to its members

For people living NOW the school of life

For YOU to send all your good news to

upside down = instead of announcing what we plan to do
(& most often find out we do not need to do), we relate what we really did

Building communities of trust is fundamental to healing our collective wound. At Plukrijp, we offer spaces of transparency and solidarity. The
community allows people to encounter each other in truth and so develop trust.
We do the garden for YOU

This week @ Plukrijp
We did:

In this heat wave we did, or tried to do:

Clear the line between tunnel 4&5, hoping to repair or replace the plastic. We will need to install a ventilation window halfway, but lack the competence. If no help is forthcoming,
we will just add another layer on top&hope to withstand winter storms. Replacing the old plastic with a new one is a many-hands precision job we do not want to blow considering the cost of the plastic.

Harvest tomatoes, melons, beans, basil, …. &urgently juiced or dried a lot of grapes from the closed tunnels

Welcomed Toon for an introduction/inspiration 3 day visit. We also went to his 2-3 ha nearby (future) permaculture place&(now) horse
training facility. It was nice to see how easy the transition from linear to cyclic thinking, living & acting could be.
We will keep on offering design, seeds & plants to ALL new initiatives, a basic function of no nonsense permaculture. In these complicated times, the need for collaboration becomes more evident.

The continuing saga of the burning fertility of our now (after months of
Casablanca weather) pure sandy soil. Whatever of the crops that still function as a cover are taking a hit, pumpkins dying, the leaves of the sweet corn drying while the ears ripen way too
soon, the many ex-beautiful lines of carrots hanging on to dear life, the tomato plants growing leaves & flowers instead of fruit, apples & pears & prunes drying out on the tree, ….
we did use the drought to our advantage by collecting lots of seeds for next year(s). We also went through the seed-stock.
An inventory will be forthcoming for seed-savers to exchange with.

Start the moving of our library to the extra room now available (thank you Malika & feel free to use the bed when needed). Joshka
is eager to start the inventory. Books fulfill a central function in our daily perma-teaching. Orderly management gives encouragement to the many youngsters deconditioning from
Fakebook” for whom book-reading is a not-yet-discovered realm of life, a real cave of
Ali Baba.

Interesting Movies & Documentaries


La Grande Bouffe
is a
1973 Frech-Italian film
directed by
Marco Ferreri. It stars
Marcello Mastroianni, Ugo Tognazzi, Michel Piccoli, Philippe Noiret and Andréa Ferréol
. The film centres on a group of friends who plan to eat themselves to death. It satirises
consumerism and the decadence of the
bourgeoisie and was therefore controversial upon its release. It has become a
cult film.

Having always been “attracted by actions and words that repeat themselves”, Bunuel constructs his film as an endless loop in which six bourgeois try, in vain, to dine

What is worth seeing behind this semblance of a narrative framework is of course the bourgeois malaise, and its inability to communicate as well as to enjoy the slightest pleasure, here nutritious. Chatting, talking to say nothing or at best evoking the exact
recipe of the Dry Martini are the only occupations of the protagonists. But eating, no, it’s impossible. They get the wrong day, land in an inn where the staff watches over the boss’s corpse, are interrupted by military maneuvers, find themselves unwillingly
actors in a play or killed by the police … without ever having been able to lead. a term meal. The sexual metaphor is obvious here, since both food and sex are the two basic sources of pleasure. In this regard, all those who try to copulate in the film do
not succeed either, unless they go and perform the act outside, therefore outside of this social framework. But these repressed sexual impulses go so far as to reach the Oedipus complex, the mother-food being the object of desire thwarted by multiple father
figures (often military or police, thus representing authority in a more than symbolic way. ). The two dreams told by the soldiers throughout the story only accentuate this oedipal desire.

Stuck in a determined microcosm, they wander aimlessly trying to find an occupation. Trafficking in money, heroin, adultery, everyone will have their hidden face, their dark side, the bishop even turning out to be a murderer, the ambassador of the Republic
of Miranda sheltering former Nazis in his country, whom he finds moreover very sympathetic.

Giulietta is a middle-class woman who lives easily in a rich house with her husband and two maids. Her parents and family distract her from a sanitized world. But she
discovers that her husband, whom she naively loves, is unfaithful to her. An extraordinary mental universe opens up to her, in which her mind mixes dream and reality. We discover in Giulietta no longer the conformist bourgeoisie, but a being of extraordinary
inner richness.

1900 (Italian: Novecento, “Twentieth Century”) is a 1976 epic historical drama film directed by Bernardo Bertolucci and featuring an international ensemble cast including
Robert De Niro, Gérard Depardieu, Dominique Sanda, Francesca Bertini, Laura Betti, Stefania Casini, Ellen Schwiers, Sterling Hayden, Alida Valli, Romolo Valli, Stefania Sandrelli, Donald Sutherland, and Burt Lancaster. Set in Bertolucci’s ancestral region
of Emilia, the film chronicles the lives and friendship of two men – the landowning Alfredo Berlinghieri (De Niro) and the peasant Olmo Dalcò (Depardieu) – as they witness and participate in the political conflicts between fascism and communism that took place
in Italy in the first half of the 20th century. The film premiered out of competition at the 1976 Cannes Film Festival.

Inspiring Book

Acclaimed The Science of Discworld centred around an original Pratchett story about the wizards of Discworld. In it they accidentally witnessed the creation and evolution of our universe, a plot
which was interleaved with a Cohen & Stewart non-fiction narrative about Big Science.

In The Science of Discworld II: The Globe our authors join forces again to see just what happens when the wizards meddle with history in a battle against the elves for the future of humanity on
Earth. London is replaced by a dozy Neanderthal village. The Renaissance is given a push. The role of fat women in art is developed. And one very famous playwright gets born and writes The Play.
