    Why are you here?

    Just finished "My Ishmael" which I recommend and which is more concrete than the other (wonderful) books in the series so I thought it time to "come out" outside my circle of acquaintences. I've "pushed" Ishmael for several years and The Story of B since it became available and have several copies of each I try to keep continually loaned to others and I loaned My Ishmael today (11Nov97). Ishmael also made my December gift giving real easy one year!

    I'm not the brightest person (or "B") in the cosmos but I'm happy to answer questions or otherwise participate in Ishmael/B discussions.

    Any other personal information/resources/advice/ideas to share?

    I'm involved in trying to start a new community radio station here (http://www.verinet.com/prfr) which when realized could be useful to the cause. I could possibly also be talked into helping related local activists.

    Fort Collins has two intentional communities which may be appealing for Ishmaelites as a weak form of tribalism -- or at least a considerably less wasteful way to live.

    I've found the following books useful: Eisler's "Chalice and the Blade" and "Sacred Pleasure", Mander's "In the Absence of the Sacred", Piercy's "Woman on the Edge of Time (SCI-FI).

    B/Ishmaelites should be aware of the "voluntary simplicity" movement. One related book is "Your Money or Your Life" around which a local book study group was supposedly formed recently. Perhaps the library has more information?

    A rather astounding PBS program (astounding for PBS these days anyway) recently aired called "Affluenza" which was about the failure of consumerism to make people happy. More info at www.pbs.org and www.affluenza.org
