Choo choo cups come with choo choo responsibilities

August 11, 2008

Just a quick post to answer some questions. (Puerto Rico is still an island…)

1) The titles to the blog posts are funny things the kids have said throughout the day…Except more often than not, it is Lisa that says them… They are almost always taken out of context, but it has been a fun game to spend the day looking for the funniest thing to use as a title. Often it is an inside joke that makes Lisa and I laugh until we cry but doesn’t make any sense to anyone else.

2) A neomonastic community is one that lives together in community while observing a common rule. The wikipedia article I attached will give a broad picture of what neomonasticism is all about. The two other girls that I’m living with and I will develop our own rule and routine. Until we sit down, I can’t really articulate what exactly our community will look like. It will definitely include meals, baking, and sharing hospitality with the Perkins community and the neighborhood. I can’t wait!

    I was in school with the Rutba house folks when they started their community… it was realy cool — though I think yours will be more fashionable and cutely decorated! 🙂 Sounds like fun!
