Hersch Wilson is a 30-year veteran volunteer firefighter and EMT with Santa Fe County’s Hondo Fire Department. Firefighter Zen: A Field Guide to Thriving in Tough Times brings the reader into the front lines with Hersch and his teams and offers succinct field notes for those of us on the somewhat less dramatic sidelines. How do firefighters keep calm in the midst of chaos ? How do they process the grief and sometimes anger they feel with passion ? How do they summon grit and courage in the face of monstrous tragedy ? Be brave, be kind, fight fires.
Interviewing Hersch was enormous fun despite the subject matter, and these 23 minutes are dedicated to all the brave and dedicated firefighters in our County and in our country.
Discover “The Wonder-Full World of The Home” with Timothy Hass. Timothy’s compact book is filled with examples and simple exercises to help us bring our homes to vibrant life in “collaboration” with unseen beings that cohabit with us, just like faeries and nature spirits may help our gardens ! Open your mind to the possibilities of techno-elementals, underbuddies and even electro-elementals who might just help to fix our devices and gadgets. Timothy, also works with the Wild Foundation and tells a remarkable true story of how “underbuddies” saved the day in a potentially volatile situation at a Wild Congress in Mexico City.
