I dream of a place where I wake up in the morning and stretch my arms to the sky.
Where decisions have meaning and questions know why.
I dream of a place full of creativity and inspiration.
A place that gives the sensation of a deep inhalation.
I dream of a place where there is always something to learn and to teach.
I look at the people around me and I know that this is not out of reach.
I dream of a place where my daughter is not just my own.
To raise a child in community, confident knowing the whole world is her home.
I dream of a place where I can work with the land.
A place where the earth will never be far from my hands.
I dream of a place where I will feed the land and it will feed me in return.
Like the people, the land too will teach me things I have yet to learn.
I dream of a community where the people move like water flowing naturally.
From small habitats to shared spaces throughout the community.
I dream of a big table surrounded by new strangers and old friends.
A place to share meals where rich conversation never ends.
I dream of a life that leaves little trace.
Together in consciousness we can realize this place.
I dream of stepping outside of the race.
The day I will slow down and find my very human pace.
Where things may take longer but life has more meaning.
Together we move forward and I know I'm not just dreaming.
