The Maryhill Integration Network, the organization that I use to work for, was just featured in a documentary on the BBC. Unfortunately, I can't view it in US right now. . .but I did come across this short clip of some of their work on you tube. I can't wait to go back to Glasgow.

"THIS IS WHAT YOU SHALL DO: LOVE THE EARTH AND SUN AND ANIMALS, DESPISE RICHES, GIVE ALMS TO EVERYONE THAT ASKS, STAND UP FOR THE STUPID AND CRAZY, DEVOTE YOUR INCOME AND LABOR TO OTHERS, HATE TYRANTS, ARGUE NOT CONCERNING GOD, HAVE PATIENCE AND INDULGENCE TOWARD THE PEOPLE, TAKE OFF YOUR HAT TO NOTHING KNOWN OR UNKNOWN OR TO ANY MAN OR NUMBER OF MEN, GO FREELY WITH POWERFUL UNEDUCATED PERSONS AND WITH THE YOUNG AND WITH THE MOTHERS OF FAMILIES. READ THESE LEAVES IN THE OPEN AIR EVERY SEASON OF EVERY YEAR OF YOUR LIFE, RE-EXAMINE ALL YOU HAVE BEEN TOLD AT SCHOOL OR CHURCH OR IN ANY BOOK, DISMISS WHATEVER INSULTS YOUR OWN SOUL, AND YOUR VERY FLESH SHALL BE A GREAT POEM.” WALT WHITMAN
