Martin, Thanks for your note. I would very much like to attend the "Getting It Built" workshop in July. My wife and I have had some qualms about Esalen, however. The physical setting is certainly beautiful enough. We'd like our thirteen year old son to come to the workshop with us and we're concerned that the nudity of Esalen and age thirteen don't mix very well. I have shared my concern with Katie McCamant. I suspect what we'll do is wait for another opportunity to attend the workshop. ========== You also asked about the name, Meadowhearth. This is the name my wife chose for our home in the town of Pleasanton some years ago. I've come to like it especially because it contains both 'hearth' and 'earth.' The notion of thinking globally and acting locally seems to be implied. I've also appreicated the similar sentiment in Rob Sandelin's phrase: building a better society one neighborhood at a time. Pleasanton, by the way, was named after a Civil War General; this could make it a kind of wolf in sheep's clothing! It is a pleasant town, however, and might even be a good site for a cohousing project if we can find the requisite number of "burning souls." Best wishes. ====================================================================== Grant Syphers Meadowhearth, Pleasanton, CA gsyphers [at] igc.apc.org ======================================================================
