People do what they can until they can't and then they don't. -Herb Stein
We are all creatures of habit. We do today what we did yesterday, that is until we hit some kind of impasse that ends up being our wake up call. Maybe the car runs out of gas before we get to where we are going. Maybe we come home from work to find our spouse has moved out. Maybe we swipe our card and the clerk says "I'm sorry, do you have another card?"
We are all living in a time when a lot of the way we used to do things are no longer working. Church, school, work, neighborhoods, transportation, ecology..... The problem is we are pretending that they are still working and so we just keep going through the motions. We are simply too busy spinning in our little rat cages to recognize our true situation. We need to stop spinning, get out of the cage, take a good look around, get quiet and imagine a new response.
If there ever was a time for the creative visionary it is now. But the visionary is no good on her own she must be able to get in step with the practical person who understands how to implement a plan and work through the action steps that lead to knew developments. We really need to figure out how to work together and every front imaginable.
