|What do you think you're doing?|
My assumption is that people see us in action first. They see our social practice in their communities. They see the messages on our buildings. They see our online presence over the shoulder of their friends. They are following people who follow some of us. So they get the picture that we are a group of well-meaning, committed, ethically driven, genuine people who do good things, support good causes.
But why? Why do we set these aspirations for ourselves?
We need fresh and contemporary language to explain ourselves, our missions, our goals, our methods. Assembling that language is what I am trying to do.
Occasionally, I turn a phrase that works well. Sometimes, I get out a well-crafted and meaningful sentence. I invite you to use it, modify it, polish it up and make it yours. I am not writing to make money. I am not writing to be frequently quoted with footnotes. I am writing to change the way we talk.
