I am reading Peter Block's book called Community: The Structure of Belonging. It is very inspiring.
He talks about bringing all people into participation, especially those who may otherwise be invisible parts of our society.
I have some neighbors, who I doubt you would call invisible. Nonetheless, they are pretty non-traditional and they are a big part of this project. Their enthusiasm is contagious, especially Melody.
Yesterday we had our third board meeting. It was great to be able to share some of the emerging programming. Afterwards, Melody and I sat around in the Community House and sang songs.
It was so fun.
It is important that while we are doing the good work of starting up a project we remember to stop and smell the roses, and of course sing about them too.
