10 Years Ago…

Good Commons was purchased 10 years ago on December 1, 2006.     When I bought Good Commons, I was a somewhat neurotic New Yorker, born a farm girl, that wanted to return to country roots yet continue to have culture, stimulation and entertainment.  The idea for Good Commons and my new life style had been ruminating for many years and so when I saw this rundown property in sleepy Plymouth, it...

What do You Want?

I’m stealing this from the amazing astrologer Rob Brezsny whose work far surpasses the woo-woo that some folks believe surrounds astrology. This is an example that Brezsny suggests for us to say out loud to see how it feels: “I know exactly what I want. I know exactly what I don’t want.

How and Why We Learn

I have engaged in a hefty amount of religious study in my journey on earth. I have distilled down multiple stories, parables and teachings in an attempt to get to the heart of the matter –“why“ we matter. I have always been an extremely goal oriented person, but as of late it is clear to me that learning is our ultimate purpose. Although college works as a tool for learning,...
