Over six years into building an intentional community called the Village on Sewanee Creek, it’s an interesting coincidence that we finished this video on election day and have just uploaded it to YouTube. I hope it’s a comforting response to troubling times.
I actually went to bed early on election night before results started coming in. I slept well, knowing that no matter the outcome of the election, I had done all I could or should. I awoke early, as usual. Like most of you, I found it fascinating to review the Facebook posts from last evening. So divided, so extreme!
I have a few suggestions:
For those who are celebrating, partay on, dudes!
For the indifferent, get back to work. Move along, there’s nothing to see here.
Then there are about half of the voters who are genuinely concerned about the state of the Republic, your civil rights, the economy and what happens when a President is re-elected, with no prospects or concerns for re-election and a history of trampling the constitution. This is especially for those of you who have noticed that it doesn’t matter which party that President comes from. For you, it’s time to take action to secure your future. The system is broken. When things are beyond a political solution, it’s time for a personal solution. In this video, I speak on the foundational values of the Village on Sewanee Creek. Self-Sufficiency, Personal Freedom, harmony between people and nature, adherence to the Golden Rule.
If you’re in the mood to reclaim a sense of peace and security in your life, you can inquire about living in the Village here.
