I've been forgetting to breathe, well, holding my breath to hear the official word from the official members of the official intentional community that Ken and I have been "courting" since February. Using the word official is a bit misleading. Since they don't have much member turnover, every seven years or so, there's actually nothing 'official' about our joining process at all.
It's been an evolving, murky, pulse-quickening, intriguing, frustrating, exploratory experience in "process" and patience and personalities. Apparently, our initiation into the trials of a small intentional community in the Skagit Valley... Wahoooooooo!
