"Wisdom and inspiration: thought provoking, humourous, delightful, guru-like, quirky, energizing, enabling, challenging, alerting, awakening….the way individuals, teams and groups start every day as a Great Day" – The Replies Book

You see this tribe, who in part exist and are also partly in existence in my short story, always sat visitors in the Consideration House.

A visitor would be invited to converse separately with several members of the community, then once they all agreed – if they all agreed – would be free to wander around and do whatever they wished.

Even though this sounds like a screening process, everyone was welcome. It was just better to “get to know” new people. Fair enough and reasonably wise; we do this in Flaubert Heights, our very own cluster of homes and a “vibrant community”.
