QUEST FOR COMMUNITY CARAVAN----THE BEGINNING
THE START OF SOMETHING-----WONDERFUL!
Right there---our rigs lined up along this beautiful lake---something wonderful is being conceived.
From my doorway
A flying maching purrs past
Here in this lovely--cost free spot---somewhere near Yuma, AZ---some friends and I are setting in motion the Quest-for-Community caravan. We posted our separate visions on the previous blog with an invitation to like-minded individuals to contact us and possibly join us in creating a brand-new type of mobile community for a summer long adventure in the state of New Mexico.
We have been surprised and delighted at the response.----- From around the nation we have received inquiries and applications---from lots of terrific people. We will select 7 or 8 to join us in creating our new community. I will post updates on our whereabouts and All others are welcome to visit us wherever we are to see how the community building is going--and put themselves on a stand-by list for unforseen vacancies.
Here are our agreements thus far:
1. We have no set travel schedule---we will move when serendippity beckons. Good sense of course suggest that we start low in the state and move higher following pleasant temperatures.
2. Our purpose is to champion one another to live our most inspired lives as we create this intentional community on wheels.
3. We have no Guru or Swami--We are all leaders--- from time to time when our expertise calls us to step forward.
RANDY PHILOSOPHIZES: I believe everyone hungers to connect--to be known--and to contribute.
That is what I personally am aiming at. I think it would be a terrific contribution if this tiny group could demonstrate that the good life people hunger for---is at hand--almost literally within walking distance. We just need to live simply enough to clear the space and time to discover ourselves and what we would enjoy contributing. I wish we could encourage a million people---who already have enough money to retire---to do so---and open up a million jobs for people beginning their careers.
