in search of the next challenge

It isn’t that I’m not challenged right now. It isn’t that growing RAGGEDedge has become boring or easy, but it has become something I’m confident I can do. Not because I know exactly what is going to work, but because we have developed a way of working at it and with each other. We have a rhythm.

Rather then rest and relax in the rhythm, we find ourselves looking for the next step. Where do we go now? What is the next “evil plan“? We’ve figured how to make this a reality, so what is our next seemingly crazy direction that we’d like to explore? It’s like getting to this point with RAGGEDedge has made us aware of a skill set that we want to take and apply to another, higher level of where we want to be.

The direction is towards community and self-sustainability. RAGGEDedge can happen anywhere, our only attachments to Clearwater are the amazing people we have met, that have opened our eyes to realms of opportunity and possibility, and want to take all of those people with us. Our idea is similar to The Farm in Tennessee, but on a much smaller scale… Perhaps a 100 acres, and 5-10 families.

      Ben- Thanks for sharing that. The more I talk about this idea, the more people share about similar places they’ve heard of. Turns out there are quite a few. Just today, someone mentioned one in NC, and another one in PA. It is inspiring to see/read what other people are up to in a similar vain. (and so very cool that the internet makes it so easy to find & share this information)
