An end--and a beginning

I started this blog as an experiment in exploring our relationship with nature, the community of the land. It's been an enlightening exercise: I've learned from both the writing and from reading your comments and conversations. But it's time for me to move on. I want to consider a broader range of questions, beginning with what this trip through life is about, and how we can embody the best of our species. Tough times like these offer us an opportunity to reevaluate our lives, to simplify and go deeper, to re-purpose what no longer works, find new solutions, and re-think old ones. We're all on the same journey, walking between birth and death, and then cycling back around to take part in some new form of life. Our legacy is how we live in all the moments along the way. My intention is to live in a way that I leave this miraculous green and blue planet and its communities of the land in better shape than I found them.

Just how to do that is what I'll investigate in my new blog, Walking Nature Home. I'll try out ideas for what I call the good life, the way of living happily and healthfully on the planet Buckminster Fuller called "Spaceship Earth" in common with all the other lives riding with us. Join me to continue the journey, and the conversation!

Ring in the new while bidding a fond farewell to the old. I will miss "Community of the Land" but I welcome "Walking Nature Home".

Thanks, you three! It's been a challenge deciding how to set up a new blog that reflects where I'm going now. But I've learned a lot about my own work in the doing--always a good thing. ;~)

Susan,

Will this blog remain up as an archive? There is so much good material; I hope so.

Yes, Janet. I'm planning on leaving it up on the archive. Which reminds me--I need to point my new blog back to this one! Thanks, Susan
