One possibility at a time

Interesting interview last night with a grassroots community leader in a thriving transformational community.

The summary statement after two hours of breath-taking sagas was: “We get ideas and make them happen.” Story after story where small self-organizing actions, fully self-empowered, move a community from demise to flourish in less than a generation. No political leadership, no community consensus, no big money, no institutional support. Just making things happen, one possibility at a time.
