Appreciations

This idea has been fermenting for decades and came into clarity in isolation during the 2020 pandemic. It is informed by thousands of generous souls from babies, students and academics, cleaners, carpenters and country folk, politicians, manufacturers and merchants, old and new friends, the dead and alive, siblings, offspring and theirs, and partners in life.
It is a theory of change, informed by human contact and communication over decades.You may have been virtual, or seated near by, a scream on a phone or a face on a screen, you are human and we share this place. We aspire and hope and have dreams and songs and we strive for more and better and longer and that is our commons and ours to protect and nurture in perpetuity.
Thank you.
