(definition of "community" described by an old aboriginal man from arnhem land, northern territory, australia)
if you live in a place that you love, you can stand up. the trouble is that you only have one leg and the wind can come from any direction and blow you over.
if you live in a place that you love, with people that you love, you have two legs and so you can walk. the trouble is that you can walk in the wrong direction.
if you live in a place that you love, with people that you love and do work that is important for you and for them, you have three legs. with three legs you are strong like a kangaroo and kangaroos can't jump backwards.
