Profile Information

How are you currently involved in the Transition movement?
Not yet ... but want to be. I live in the middle of a metropolitan area ... and wish to move, perhaps, to somewhere in southern OH. But I am caring for an elderly mother who is in the area. So my thinking now is southern OH OR West Virginia ....
In what ways do you identify with the Transition movement? Why are you interested?
In what ways? The ways are ENDLESS. Mostly, right now - at least while I am still eating and have a place to live (probably not for long), its the aloneness, the spiritual part ... because the few friends I have don't "get it." They look at me with glazed eyes when I talk about collapse. I hate myself for being so incompetent re surviving. Being smart about how to make "do" with little. I tried working on a Ph.D. in sociology - for the past ten years. What a *&^)&_((& waste of time. But then, I have a few stories there. I, with the people on this site, believe that working together in communities is "the answer" - to the extent there is an answer. But what I fear is that so many people will turn to violence against the very people with whom they can be working! I fear that there will be racial, ethnic, etc. hatred ... scape-goating. I know violence doesn't work (although, really, it has, hasn't it? Much blood has been spilled for the union movement, et al.) but the violence wouldn't be directed against the perpetrators of the final collapse - the economic collapse. All of it planned. All of it planned. Pardon the rant.
How can you help the growth/acceptance/vitality of the Transition movement? What can YOU teach us? What can your GROUP teach us?
I can help after I've been helped. I would like to know what books are the best ... what videos/DVD's would help. Once I learned, I would dig in and help others. What would be a good place to be geographically?
Your Favorite Books/Websites/Blogs/RSS Feeds for Information about the Transition Movement
Right now, Carolyn Baker and the links she provides. I know there are lots of others. I assume you have some links on your site that I haven't explored yet.
