I grew up in a kind of utopian community called York Center Community co-operative. One of my neighbors was Terry Patten who is living an exciting life. He is currently on a citizen diplomacy mission in Iran sponsored by the Fellowship of Reconciliation. He has a great blog which I heartily recommend you explore.
This blog has been a wake up call for me. I love the way that Terry is active and engaged and it challenges me to do likewise with my own life. I feel like I have some more serious writing to do and reading this blog has inspired me to get to it! Thanks Terry!
