A New Community is Forming

In many ways the search for a Sustainable Community to live in is easy, we risk very little, yet those who build them offer their work and themselves to our judgment, some thrive on negative criticism, which is fun to write and to read. But the bitter truth of those who criticize must face, is that in the grand scheme of things, the average piece of junk is probably more meaningful than our criticism. But, there are times when the critic truly risk something and that is in the discovery and the defense of something new. The world is often unkind to a new concept, new creations... The new needs friends... Recently, I experienced something new, an extra ordinary community concept from a singularly unexpected source. To say both the concept and its ideas challenged my preconceptions of community is a gross understatement. In truth, they have moved me to my core. I realize, only now in today’s world, what a community should be. Not everyone can develop a great idea, but a great idea can develop anywhere. It is difficult to imagine a more humble origin than those of the Betterfields Community, who is in my opinion, is nothing less than the bar.
