The Land Agenda — Let’s talk Timelines again April 24, 2011

Filed under: Decision Making,Finance,Question: Needs Input,Vision — lily @ 10:36 pm

I made this little art piece above my door last week, if you can see all the way to the left it reads “The Land Agenda”.  The Land Agenda is simply:

Buy land by the time I’m 30.

So, that’s four years people. Not very long! But also not tomorrow. I remember sometimes that I’ve been here in SF for just over 2.5 years and have created sooo much, 4 years is a long time. But it is also very short and there are many things to figure out before a group buys land together, which is also part of The Land Agenda. So it’s really:

Buy land with a group by the time I’m 30.

QUESTION for the delightful masses: What is your ideal timeline? Don’t worry about mine, just state honestly what feels good to you right now in your life for a timeline.

Love,

Lily

 

Let’s throw down our thoughts, Lovelies! February 28, 2010

Manifest Love Beauty Think Together Dream New Reality Share Evolve Live Really Ridiculously Well Together Vision.   Yes.

so, lovelies, let’s use this to throw down our daily thoughts about community, and build a dialog over time. This blog should serve as a group journal of sorts. Put down your thoughts, inspiration, ideas, and over time we’ll  shape this thing we call life.  🙂

So, let’s each become admins to this blog and then everyone can post thoughts and tag them by category, so the posts can then be sorted anytime by subject! These can be well articulated, or just quickly jotted down. More is better! Include links, pics etc.  We can comment on posts to have a conversation and also have conversations by making new posts that link to previous ones.  (This post is tagged with all the categories so far, just so they show up)

Let’s also build some pages to put down central ideas as they emerge. These can also be edited by all over time.

I love you all, and am so excited to start talking with you this way.
