You say you want a revolution?

Yes.

My revolution:

  • A return to meaningful human connections
  • between diverse individuals
  • engaging in communal work and play,
  • from boring, typical, and traditional
  • to the quirky, weird, and innovative.
  • to promote a caring community.

How?

  1. Refuse to accept complacency. apathy. shame.
  2. Connect through social media.
  3. Invite others to join.
  4. Meet face-to-face.
  5. Take tangible actions together.
  6. Find our spark.
  7. Celebrate our triumphs.
  8. Repeat.

    Revolution

    By The Beatles

    You say you want a revolution
    Well, you know
    We all want to change the world
    You tell me that it’s evolution
    Well, you know
    We all want to change the world
    But when you talk about destruction
    Don’t you know that you can count me out
    Don’t you know it’s gonna be all right
    All right, all right

    You say you got a real solution
    Well, you know
    We’d all love to see the plan
    You ask me for a contribution
    Well, you know
    We’re doing what we can
    But when you want money
    For people with minds that hate
    All I can tell is brother you have to wait
    Don’t you know it’s gonna be all right
    All right, all right…

    (Now if only I could get Larry to stop squealing in my ear…Don’t you know it’s gonna be…all right…all right …all right…)

What difference do you want to make?

I want to make a difference in the lives of people living in Orange by filling a need I see in the town of Orange for facilitating hopeful, energetic community engagement.

I feel I have a lot to offer as a community engagement facilitator.  (I just made that title up!)

Through online resources and social media, I would connect people to the numerous, already available, local opportunities and help create partnerships and awareness between the local groups that are already working to make Orange County a better place.

I would also create and facilitate small, focused, out-of-the-box activities for community engagement drawing on my passion for the innovative, the energy of our youth, the creativity of our arts community, the passion of our faith based groups, the experience of our business community, and the wisdom of our elders.

I believe that helping people feel connected and engaged with their community makes a difference in their lives.
