About Earthrise: Global Odyssey

A Glocal Odyssey in Earthrise Pedagogy. A Reflections On Self, Society, and the Planet The word “global” sounded pretentious for though we traveled the world widely, calling it “global” made it sound like we knew the world that well. I was part of what I called, earthrise consciousness, where the perspective on the planet was looking at it inits wholeness, like the snapshot taken that gave rise to the earthrise icon,rather than the reflected-refracted sunrise-sunsetreduced to a reflection of our best image from the sun. The word “glocal” from the whole spectrum of global-local was born. Earthrise struck in the United States when I discovered that the Civil Rights measures of LBJ were intentions into a future rather than a done deal on the ground. I attended schools in Kentucky and Texas, resided in Chicago, crisscrossed the country, lived in the States of North Carolina and Virginia, where race seethed underneath and the issue was a constant nightmare. But I was naturalized as a United States citizen in 1984 when it was still possible to go from application to a passport in three weeks after swearing-in. I became familiar withthe Ecumenical Institute (EI) 1967-1986 that earned its sweat in a Human Development Project on the Westside of Chicago I visited the same year I met Mary Louise Brunkow of Glen Ellyn, Illinois. We married and joined EI in 1972 at the Manila Religious House. In almost a score, I lived all over the US, visited Korea, Japan, Hong Kong, its Territories, Tonga, Samoa, the Marshall islands, Canada from Quebec to Vancouver; had 6-wk long stays in Jamaica, Guatemala, Brazil, Chile, Peru, and Venezuela, touching airports in Argentina, Ecuador, and Columbia.Tasted curry in India’s Maharashtra, I ate crepes at Montmartre in Paris and pizzas outside the Vatican in Rome but my plans to head for Kolkata was derailed by diarrhea, and New Delhi ended up being just an airport stop. Ipeeked at Piccadilly before Nigeria where I got malaria in Ijede by Lagos,recuperated on Portuguese Porto in Madridbefore heading home to Chicago. I did Abu Dhabi transiting in Delhi, Sri Lanka out of Maharashtra to SEA where I merged with kindred brown skin folks in Bandar Seri Begawan, Kuala Lumpur, Singapura, Jakarta and Bogor, then drove through the two islands of New Zealand, and rode the bus on Oz’ roads. I self-defrocked from the UMC in 2003 after threeappointments in Manila, Guam, and Saipan; the parting of ways was less at pretension than for real. I taught atthe Public School system (PSS, located in lists of places enumerated in this telling) in the CNMI,classes at SAUin Liaoning, Chinathat got me familiar with Dong Bei, with train rides to Beijing, Chengdu, Chongqing, Kangding, Guillin, Shanghai, Manzhouli, Harbin, Dandong and the surrounding areas. I shared the experiencesub-teaching in Saipan private schools, at NMIS and SCS, though various groups like CoC, the Humanities, Rotary, et al, got a taste of the pedagogical touch in one form or another.
