Why do we do the (community) work we do, what drives us, what binds us?

There is no better time to reflect about these questions than the beginning of Spring; "out with the old, in with the new" and all that good stuff...

The folks that are regular readers of this blog know that the postings are truly eclectic and all over the map... Some postings are philosophical and deep, while others are whimsical and fun... (But wait! Can't something be philosophical, deep, whimsical, AND fun at the same time?... hmmm... Maybe some day we'll get there!)

Anyway: Rather than prepare a new posting to address the question at hand, below are references to a series of postings over the last couple of years that highlight a progression of thought on this topic... Interestingly, it starts with one of the earliest postings (done over two years ago) that approaches the broadest of questions (what ARE our common values?, and concludes with a recent posting with a very practical and pragmatic 'shout out' to "Get involved!"

I encourage you to (re?)visit these posting; leave comments; and pass on to others... enJoy!

[NOTE: The posting's title should be descriptive enough to indicated their content. They are all 'hyper-linked'.]
