Where do we live?

Watching a TED talk today I was reminded of an Irish proverb that my colleague and I often quote:

“It is in the shelter of each other that people live.”

I am not going to say much more; I just urge you to watch this talk. On this blog, we are perhaps guilty of focusing too much on the communities on our own doorstep, the ones that look like we expect communities to look.

This talk opened my eyes, heart, and mind.
