I'm really interested in the practice of "staying at home" and cultivating, as Terry suggests a deeper sense of neighborhood. It seems to me one of the deepest practices of our time. In our house, we've established a monthly soup night, where neighborhoods and friends are invited to our house to share food and speak about an issue or creative project in which they are deeply engaged. Friends invite friends, neighbors invite neighbors and the circle changes and gets larger. One small gesture moves a thousand waves. Thanks for this engaging and insightful conversation.
