I wrote a lot of essays, over the past decade, out of my
preoccupation with the mystery of "community," that force that goes
beyond utility, that draws us together just because we are human. Many of them
were posted here. Recently, I decided to collect them into a book. It's called Dreams of
Home, for that is how I felt about community and my yearning for it. A
PDF-format copy of it and one formatted for the Microsoft Reader are available on this site, and printed copies will be
available soon. Go to a description of the book.
As I write other essays on community in the future, I'll post them here.

Mentioned often in these essays, Jack Gibb provided a theoretical foundation
for my journey into community. We are fortunate to have obtained the manuscript
files of his seminal book Trust and his last three books, intended to be published as a single-volume
trilogy. Click here to read more.
