There are no anomalies here today, so you have my leave to explore elsewhere. [not that you need it, I know]. This post is "inspired" by the "moment". The moment is being in a world where I can watch a small band of teenage boys [with terrible non-parenting] hurling disrespect and gross comments at women, and then screaming crazily at the man who asked them to stop doing so---even picking up a couple of bricks to punctuate their remarks. This was the scene that I watched yesterday on the street near where my mother is being housed. These were the band of truant punks about to become thugs, "smoothly transitioning" from obnoxious elements of society to actually hurting people in their time. Evolving right before your eyes into criminals-to-be without a chance to find out who they are on the positive scale of life. Everybody in the picture was/is losing. The police of course felt that they could do nothing since no one had physically assaulted anyone [yet]. When I embed that wonderful experience into a world of violent militia, tea party fringers, terrorists, and screaming talk-radio rabble rousers, I believe that today, on April 1st, we are April Fools indeed. So I console myself with publishing something that I and several "romantic" friends worked upon for a long time. It is a "Covenant" for a hoped-for ecovillage project that we have been in process of one day bringing into being. If the state of the economy ever gives us the chance, we are resolved to make a living community based upon the following ideals. We are very far along. We are just looking now for a "few good men and women" to be our partners in this dream. It is a spiritual ideal, not a religious/dogmatic one. Anyone who could agree to the following would be more than welcomed. Anyone who would want to take these statements and publish/use them as their own, is welcome as well.
The covenant is a living and real thing for us. We try to honor it during our meetings and each of our decisions. In this we are "All-The-Way-Fool". Even if the economy never lets us succeed, it gives me some peace to know that it is at least possible to think of such a dream.
