Antoine deSaint-Exup�ry

I've always loved this quote:

"If you want to build a ship, don't drum up the men to gather wood, divide the
work and give orders. Instead, teach them to yearn for the vast and endless


After googling a bit more found that Antoine had some other true things to

?Life has taught us that love does not consist in gazing at each other but in
looking outward together in the same direction?

?Perhaps love is the process of my leading you gently back to yourself?

?The beginning of love is to let those we love be perfectly themselves, and
not to twist them to fit our own image. Otherwise we love only the reflection
of ourselves we find in them.?

?Love does not cause suffering: what causes it is the sense of ownership,
which is love's opposite?

?A single event can awaken within us a stranger totally unknown to us. To live
is to be slowly born.?

~ Antoine-Marie-Roger de Saint-Exup�ry (1900-1944)

...just like phone calls

Been a long while since I've blogged... So much happening and just like making
those phone calls that I want to make, I just don't do it. Maybe I'm just more
interspective than I think??

a few highlights...
- nyc vineyard has been flourishing. we're onto new territory with our trashy
selves. great things happening here. it is so very cool to be apart of
something as big in the cosmic, important sense. i love the leaders we have
around us, the anarchist tendencies of some of my favorite people, the
steadiness & safety of the community as a whole & the sense that we're
partnering with God in what he's up to. it hardly feels like church, but more
what just makes sense for life.

- erica is crazed with school work, but coming up with wicked cool projects. she
has to design a lamp (& make it work) based on alfred hitchcock asthetics.

- my work has been cool as well. hard, but worth it.

- some of my favorite people will be in town in the next weeks... so looking
forward to seeing all of them.

- i've learned how to flash the bios on an old laptop i had in my possession
(exciting stuff!). so now i've got windows XP on it... trying to get a machine
that will be *mine*.

- we're paying off all our bills! due to a very cool gift.
