For the Monday November 14th gathering, how about we meet at the Starbucks in Blaine located at 1384 109th Avenue (the South-West corner of 109th Avenue and Highway 65. We will meet from around 6:30 to 8:30 p.m..
And for a topic I thought that living simply might be a good one in these complex times. One of my favorite sources on the topic is the Australian organization The Simplicity Institute. If you get a chance check out their report titled “Your Delightful Day: The Benefits of Life in the Simpler Way” by Ted Trainer available here: http://simplicityinstitute.org/wp-content/uploads/2011/04/YOURDELIGHTFULDAYTrainer1.pdf . More information on simplicity can be found in their other publications available here: http://simplicityinstitute.org/publications .
Trainers paper gives an overview of how living simply might look and covers the areas of time, work, housing, self-sufficiency, living frugally, community, town self-government, landscape, wealth, health, leisure, and peace of mind. No need to read the paper, but come with thoughts on how you are working towards living more simply and how we might simplify our lives even more.
Hope to see you Monday and peace to all in our troubled times.
