If you don't know about water you need to learn. You need to know where it comes from, where it goes and whats in it.
We have our special water issues up here in the treasure coast. The water from Lake Okeechobee gets too high and the dike won't hold it and it gets discharged into the St Lucie and the Caloosahatchee River. This summer it produced huge amounts of pollution, toxic blue green algar that kept us all out of the water and frankly destroyed our economy which up until then was buzzing along.
In this piece I am catching with my friend Marty Baum who is our Indian Riverkeeper.
here is the history of riverkeepers
and this is the waterkepper alliance site -go there and find your riverkeeper

Our mission is to inspire others
to seek self identity through the Freestyle expression of dance. Dance is a reflection of your own personal being, and we utilize dance to paint the picture that individuals are seeking for. Our greatest lesson at the DRUM sessions is who you are and what you learn on the dance floor, is who you are and what you learn off the dance floor.
"Growth & understanding is not just on the floor but... off the floor"

Bossa Nova and Samba are well-known musical exports, but Brazil has made many other contributions to music culture. The documentary “Moro No Brasil (Sound of Brazil)” is a passionate exploration of the richness and diversity of local Brazilian music. Director Mika Karismäki details the musical legacy of the largest country in Latin America, which has had a variety of inhabitants including Indians, Europeans, Africans and more. These cultural influences have combined to create rhythms like Forró, Frevo, Embolada and of course, Samba. The director traveled 4,000 kilometers, crossed three states in the Northwest of Brazil, and spoke to more than thirty musicians, most of them street musicians and unknown to foreigners. This program offers unparalled access to the Brazilian people, their culture and their art.
