A New Beginning

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.

  2. Dear Bear

    Its been a while since we met in the magic of Borl. Congratulations on this work – I am in the same proces, building a site called Tarot Academy. I am doing it in Danish, translation will follow…For the English speaking minority I do online readings using skype & teamviewer, and am finishing the translation into English of my first book at the same time as having my third book coming out in DK in a few weeks.

    I hope our paths cross again soon – we are doing Borl in Copenhagen in December parallel to the climate summit – i’d love to see you there!

    hugs, ulrik
