So many projects, so little time. Once in a blue moon, I write a little article to let readers know what is going on here, and what you will see coming in the future.

It has been quite a while since I last wrote a community update. But life has been crazy here, and something else always gets in the way. Today I am fixing this.

Life has been full. I've spent some time regrouping, making plans, and trying to forge a path for Wis.Community for 2020. As some of you know, it has been a trying year at Cruiskeen Farm. My partner and wife Lorelei died in August. Our doggie Shadow left shortly before that. As a result, I'm learning to manage the farm here, which I've blissfully left to Lori while we have lived here. I've also taken some time out to get used to living alone.

As I am sure has been clear, WisCommunity has been very slowly updated for the last few months. Those of you who know me personally have been aware that my wife has had serious health issues over the last nine months. I am sad to have to report that my darling Lorelei died on August 25th at home with me and our daughters.

I have a pile of possible projects for the site in the hopper.  I'd like to ask our readers what you think should be a priority.  They're all feasible.  Some of the require the kindness of strangers. Let me know what you think:  If you have other ideas, log in to the site and leave a comment.

Wis.community is several things:

  • A collection of “mini-sites” or communities based on topic or location

  • Discussion areas in each community that can be carried on either on the site or via email or text messaging (soon)

  • Event calendars for each community, and an aggregated calendar of all of the communities

  • Spaces for news and resources in each community
