It is intended to offer resources and explore ideas with the potential of purposefully directing the momentum needed for communities to create their own new community paradigms.
It seeks to help those interested in becoming active participants in the governance of their local communities rather than merely passive consumers of government service output. This blog seeks to assist individuals wanting to redefine their role in producing a more direct democratic form of governance by participating both in defining the political body and establishing the policies that will have an impact their community so that new paradigms for their community can be chosen rather than imposed.

Starting on another Roadmap to a Life that Matters
In preparation to final start blogging again, this morning was spent continuing to reformat this blog and redefine its purpose, including giving it a new url and feed. Now I have to wait for the feed to be "registered" on the web so it can be found by some of the other online tools that I use.
This afternoon will be spent watching the the Harry Potter Deathly Hollows part 1 on video. This brings a usable segue into a recent article by Umair Haque.
The roadmap you need to follow is deeply, resonantly, profoundly, and irrevocably your own — the one that calls to you in every dreary meeting, every missed birthday, and every misplaced-but-not-quite-forgotten dream. It's the one that leads you to your better self. It says: "Follow my lead. Let's go somewhere that matters — not just somewhere that glitters." A Roadmap to a Life that Matters - Umair Haque - Harvard Business Review
Once I get the mechanics straightened out, I can start addressing the issues with which this blog has determined to be concerned.
