I am interested in the subject and I have sent my daughter some of your suggestions for developing a curriculum for children. However, I am also wary of the bias towards Christian, agrarian, and politically conservative viewpoints I find on your map and in the educational resources. My own experiences have been more eclectic and diverse. I'd like to listen, if maybe not contribute.

I’m keen. I’m in Brisbane Australia. I the timing will be 6am Sunday morning if my figuring is correct. I suspect my sister might be keen too!

I really want to do it! I didn't know about the Front Porch conference. I saw the word "conviviality" and immediately thought, "here is evidence of the communities of friends like Illich talked about!" I cannot say how many years I have fantasized. I was thinking of getting a farm sitter and going, but they are sold out! I am so near in MN and have been to Madison many times.

I recently went to health freedom conference locally and tried my best to contrive a spontaneous call to locals to gather and plan to keep knowing each other. The organizers were nervous about self-organization being misused by someone, so I just tried to boldly (being a shy person) step into conversations with strangers.

It has been suggested to me again and again to form an online community, but I don't want to! I poured my heart into trying to coordinate pandemic defense for children and families, and online did not do it for me. No more. I want real people. I keep thinking they are just around the corner. The problem is I have not been leaving notes and signals for them, have not thrown open my doors nor left the candle in the window...

Well anyways, I will certainly meet online with you all who are looking for embodied community. Lol
