Creativity & Sustainability at Siempre Sustainable Network

Siempre Sustainable Network donates funds to Doctors Without Borders for Haiti

Excerpts from Marika’s presentation on creativity and sustainability to the Siempre Sustainable Network on March 14, 2011.


Good Evening y’all, and welcome to the delightful world of:

Creativity and Sustainability

Those who dream while awake are conscious of a thousand things that escape those who dream only when they are asleep.

Paul Martin dreams while awake.  A few months ago,  I had the privilege to be an attendee at a presentation by Paul Martin about sustainability.  Here he was with a cornucopia of local vegetables, fruits and herbs demonstrating the importance of sustainability.  For a moment, it brought me back to the Saturday morning farmer’s market of Port-au-Prince, Haiti.  Some surely remember the same fond memories of Central Park.

Paul’s message ignited  my thinking.   I was dreaming while awake about the duality of creativity and sustainability.  What a marriage!  Have you ever thought of the connection between the two?  Let’s talk about it.


In conclusion, lets look at some sustainable projects in our community that have cultural meaning, are socially responsible and generate real success.

Central Park

The Texas Theater, and

Walnut Springs


Isn’t it amazing to realize how these three restoration  projects ties us closer as a community?  They offer a central location for entertainment, the arts and recreation.

Ladies and Gentlemen please Join me in dreaming while awake of Seguin as an arts destination.  For you see,the harmony of all arts is a beautiful symbol of a strong nation.
