Re: Thank you!

"Many younger people haven't even learned neighborhood-making skills ... and that's the fruit of the Boom on down. It's very frustrating."

The vast majority of younger people don't even understand the benefits of having a tight-knit community--all they can see are the drawbacks.
Frustrating and sad.

Re: Thank you!

Sadly so. That's one reason why I write community-related stories and poems, and support other people who do like haikujaguar and kajones_writing, and write for Communities. I keep hoping to clue people into the options.

Re: Thank you!

It's a good thing to do.
I've always been told to be careful what I sow; what they should have added is that when you KNOW you're sowing something good, you should sow with a lavish hand.
