Mind your manners? What manners?

Barbara Stolp Once I muttered under my breath the word, "please" because a passenger on a bus called out to the driver, "Yo! Back door!" Then I realized I was treading on dangerous ice. It's on the public buses that I find rudeness can often be a matter of quietly ignoring a senior or handicapped person who needs a seat. I have often spoken gently to the crowd, "Do any of you young, strong and beautiful folks want tp give a seat to ...?" Usually gets someone up. I have also encountered a couple folks who... [ more ]

Hello from Sai Gon - Vietnam
Mary Ann Boe Hi Fae, How exciting to be building community in cities around the world. I've heard that Viet Nam is so beautiful. Hope to hear more about your work. Are you familiar with Cormac Russell - Nurture Development? He is a favorite leader of mine in community development. Just thought I'd share. Best to you!

SUZANNE MILLER Hello Greg. I love your art. So many of your painting speak directly to my life. While those with a nautical theme depict calm water, they all take me back to my days on research and fishing boats off the Alaskan coast. The one that first appears with the red and white and all the radio equipment take me back to days spent on Coast Guard vessels. The First Day of School takes me to the Big Hole Valley of Montana where split rail fences are the norm. The black lab with the wood duck, the red... [ more ]

The Power Of Music And El Rey
Frances Kraft @André Gonzales I have read your beautiful blog several times to be able to absorb its beauty and meaning. I\'m so sorry for the loss of your Tías and of Vicente Fernández. People like them have such an impact when they\'re alive and leave a legacy that will continue to live on in those whose lives they\'ve touched. I\'m so grateful to you for sharing this moment with us. [ more ]

The art of fire-building
Former Member Roger, thank you so much for sharing this. I am not a particularly religious person, but find strong meaning in the quote you shared. As a young person, it helps me process the many social + environmental issues I see today knowing that my generation is building off the important work / fires began by others. We are not in this movement alone. [ more ]

The facts won't help
Shaylyn Romney Garrett Thanks for this, Roger. The work is both simpler and more challenging than we think. You're absolutely right that this is what will most likely bring about a greater sense that we are all in this together. [ more ]

Let's talk. No, really.
Kelly Niess Even before reading this I decided that I would like to have more meaningful conversations with my family members during the holiday…especially since our discussions could become arguments rather quickly. So I am definitely game and will let you know how it goes! [ more ]

America, Tear Down This Wall
Marc Wong I use safe driving not just as a metaphor, but also an action plan to solve our problems. We know how to get along on the roads. We can inspire people to get along in society. Teach everyone to listen (yield), check biases (blind spots), and reject ideological rage (road rage). Safe driving is proven, familiar, and not favored by any “side”. We have lots of agreement in the need and the ways to make sharing roads easier. We can tap into this shared goodwill and culture to introduce much... [ more ]

Now What?
Julien Blaney Thank you Roger Gustafson ‍ for this message of hope and grace. We cannot afford to give up our hope that one day we'll all be able to live better together. It's so hard, at times, to see this future but the alternative is unfathomable. One of my dad's favorite phrases is "one step at a time". This is the mentality I'm choosing to embrace. [ more ]

Can We Build Trust In Online Communities?
Marc Wong We get along and trust others on the roads. We can use safe driving as an action plan to inspire understanding and respect in society. Teach everyone to listen (yield), check biases (blind spots), and reject ideological rage (road rage). The key is effective training (listening, empathy, diversity, etc.) If it doesn't change hearts and minds, people will just ignore it, or even point out its flaws and actively resist it. My approach is to start with our closest relationships, and to use... [ more ]

Where The Laws Of The Jungle Don’t Apply
Kern Beare Thanks for reading and for the comment, Jeff! I agree, some shouting is inevitable. What would be great is if we can learn to navigate the inevitable complexity without getting all tangled up in it, making the mess bigger rather than smaller. [ more ]
