Warm August afternoon. Stepping into the next chapter of my life.
I’ve played around with WordPress long enough to assure myself that what I write is unlikely to be lost as I continue my search for the theme and customization that is right for me. For more than a month now this new resilient communities website has been growing in me. I’ve stepped into a new identify — Bob. I just didn’t feel comfortable with that identity being www.bobstilger.com. That just didn’t feel right.
In the middle of an early July night, flying home after a month in Brazil, I started thinking “resilientcommunities,” and it felt so right. Robert Theobald and I registered this domain back in 1998. Like many others, our attention had been caught by Y2K. For us it was all about resiliency — our capacity to dance with whatever life brings. And with all due respect to the rugged individuals out there, personal resilience and community resilence are closely intertwined.
So I return to and relaunch this website that I’ve had for more than a decade as a new base for my work. Lot’s more to say, but this is a beginning.
