I would imagine I'm one of many on the list who would like to know more from 
Don about how his community has worked to sustain and deepen trust among its

Seems like we are skating around the issue of trust, and our individual and 
collective capacity to authentically walk our talk.  IMHO this is the 
foundation for 
1.  there being more lawyers per capita in the USA than in any other country in 
the world; and
2   one of the most important issues we face in developing and sustaining all 
relationships from marriages, partnerships, communities, etc.

So rather than using this forum to speak about what is, I suggest that all of 
us can benefit by describing where we are on the path to create and sustain a 
functioning level of trust in our communities, and how we are continuing to 
sustaining and deepening trust over time.

If this suggestion generates any positive response, I will be happy to describe 
some of what we have been doing over the years.
