Baby’s First Steps

I had a transcendent experience Friday night. I’ve been working on a podcast called “Little House on the Planet.” It tells intertwined stories of engaged citizens in a place just like Northern Westchester. Some extraordinary people are working on it, and some of us met on Friday to develop characters and stories, and actually record some audio. It was a milestone reached after six years of work, and it felt great.

For years, I’ve known, written about, worked with, many people who know another world is possible, and make efforts to hasten the day. These transformation workers focus on different issues and use different methodologies, but what they have in common is a hunger for change and hope and meaning. And since the last election, many more people are finding themselves possessed of these same hungers.
