What a difference that made. Another re-framing I heard was "houseless" rather than "homeless." Some people who have houses travel, are disconnected from place, etc. and don't necessarily have a "home." Some who don't have houses are very intimately rooted in their place. Eris Who recently got back from working with Ravens Roost cohousing in Anchorage, where I imagine it would be very difficult to be houseless. ------------------------------ Eris Weaver, Facilitator & Group Process Consultant eris [at] erisweaver.info 707-338-8589 http://www.erisweaver.info fa cil i tāt: to make easier
