we live in a community called menno house. the house was started by the local mennonite church in the 1970's for conscientious objectors to the draft. now that there is no draft (& hopefully there will never be another one), our house is teeming with social workers, volunteers, & students. there are twelve of us & every tuesday we eat dinner together. here are pictures from our most recent 'soup tuesday'. we ate in our charming backyard & had tasty tomato bleu cheese soup & asparagus.

Hey guys, good to see you're still alive and eating soup. I had meant to call this past weekend, but... didn't. Maybe I'll try to remember to intend to call again this upcoming weekend. Maybe.

In the meantime, keep posting.

I'm so glad you're bloggers, 'cause I can post comments now!

Glad to see you're doing well.

Hi you too. Amanda, I just finished reading Life of Pi recently. I really liked it and realized the ugliness of the carnivore inside of me.

And Life of Pi is one of my favourite tall tales.

Hey Amanda. I figured I'd check out your blog and return the comment.

This community looks and sounds pretty great. And it's only an hour away from us! We just might have to come visit some day.

I really love the collages you guys have put together! They're beautiful. Can I come live with you guys? :)

With regard to the story I posted, it seems all or part of it was fake and/or meant to intimidate - at least the part with the gory details of the torture. There has since been a statement issued in response.
