Spending 3 days in New york on my way to Phoenix. One of the reasons is to purchase some more camera equipment.
Sunny but cold and windy. Walking through Central park and entering ”Strawberryfields” which is a memory of John Lennon, not far from his home. Without knowing it turned out to be exactly 30 years ago since he was shot. Lots of people, song and music.
Beside the corner of his house i see an old custombuild bus called ”Peacemaker”. A crew of hippies around who invite people for tea and cookies. Inside the bus a warm and pleasant atmosphere. They are members of the community Twelve tribes and the bus is one of their homes. They also have a sailboat with the same name and a farm with a full equipped workshop. ”It took 3 years to build this bus at the farm. We made one out of two old ones”. They show me some pictures from the building process and i can see some serious aluminium sheet and framework. The interior has beautiful woodwork and with parts of leather. Made with same quality as if it been a boat.
For me this is a proof of successful collective cooperation.
