Hello fellow Sharers!
It is my complete pleasure to introduce to you IAmDavid, a fellow Austinite who is fully invested in living through sharing and living in community. IAmDavid is one of the most genuine, honest individuals I know, and I would strongly advise you pay attention to the great insights he brings to the table! If you’d like to hear more, either check out www.iamdavid.org or come meet him in person at LoveATX fest (see blog/photo for more details)!
The history of man began as a family, a clan, a tribe.
Everyone had a place in the community. Everyone brought value in product, service.
We have strayed from that plan. We have closed ourselves off from the people around us.
In community, we share what we have, what we do, and what we are.
Together we all have more, and therefore, we are more.
Most of my things are in storage. A 10X10 room that is not half-full. In 56 years of working, buying, and collecting, this is what is left. I share what I have, do, and am.
As a group of creatures, we are not happy with what we have. We always want more.
The Sharing Way is ‘Old’ and ‘New’.
We are finding that more is not always better. Some of the things in my storage have not seen the sunlight in 9 months. These things cost me almost $200 per month just to store them.
What if a group of Sharing People could find a way to list what they are willing to share and to list what they are seeking to use? This would answer and solve many questions.
I am glad to say that I recently discovered this group. It is www.ActsOfSharing.com . My community meets on Mondays at 8pm, at Whole Foods. We are on the second floor, outside near the playscape, and anyone reading this is invited. For more details visit www.meetup.com/AOSATX . We’d love to share with you!
There are so many Sharing Groups in Austin. This Sunday, July 1,2012 we will join LoveATX Fest at Soma Vida, a place I visit often. Visit www.SomaVida.net for more details. I promise you will love LoveATX as well as the many events that they host.
It is not too late to save our world and help our fellow brothers and sisters. We are promising to do our part. Will you? Thank you very much for helping us share this message.
