What Else She Said

"I have had a number of paid jobs-teacher, systems administrator. Now I do Open Space projects. But I can definitely say that this work has been the most satisfying that I've ever done in my life."

"I'm poorer now! I've expended personal resources. I've given up personal resources. This was a time in my life when I could give more. And it's important to me. I get personal satisfaction from it. When we dedicated the Green, I had an epiphany: that when I join the Matriarchs, I can say, 'Yes, I've done something to make a difference.' There's at least one thing, one major thing, that I can point to, to justify the fact that I've lived on this earth."
