Life celebrations


62(candles)_leonardodasilva_5176986057_634be5a707Last week my mom would have turned 62. We are all saddened she couldn’t be here. However, the number of people that reached out to us over the last month was an awesome testimony to her life and the value she gave to so many in her many community circles and the life lessons she taught us.

Living I am currently reading Living in the Village. Many of the principles in the book are based on living life in community with others, sharing and caring about what happens to others and they do the same for you. The author gives real examples of that happening. As an architect, who has sought to be rooted in project that are developed from grassroots needs and visions, I am really interested to see how the author shows how this is put in to practice. If nothing else we can say that my mother lived to lift, help, support her village.
