A quite clean place

Congratulations

It might be deceiving to those not present in that we often air grievances on the website but err in reporting successes.

For about one month, we together have made mostly successfully endeavoured to keep this place together.   Sometimes there is mess and then it is cleaned.  People are willing to help.  Some do this, some do that.  Some do not much at all. The point is that I feel very positive about the overall functionality of the place, and if everyone did committed to a certain level of interaction on a personal level, things would flow even more smoothly.

Case in point.  Fabio and I, along with Nikki and now Chloe have been using the team approach to cleaning the kitchen.  It makes  the job more enjoyable and it gets done more quickle and results in less exhaustion.

IF  you want to clean but are afraid or resentful of doing it alone, try to reach out and ask someone for the sake of all that is good.  Cleaning is a good and healthy way to interact with others in our community.  The team approach breeds also less resentment about maintaining the physical living space, which we should move beyond and focus on developing individual and team projects.  Living together in this way comfortably would be a success story in itself, but their are also greater things to which  we aspire.  

I personally will clean even if no one else does.  I don't care.  I don't want to life in a hovel.  That said, however, this sort of communal sharing of responsibilities creates greater bonds that translate to sharing and education in other areas.


Care about yourself and
Care about eachother.
Make this project yours
Make it ours.
Make it everyone's,
Together.

That sounds very dogmatic. haha
