(ANew)Gaia Community is a dream, a practice, and a way of being present together and to each other.
This site exists to honor this vision, and to provide an online home where each of us can practice seeing others as their highest selves, supporting the basic goodness in all our hearts, and contributing, each in our own way, to a harmonious, diverse, creative, and collaborative future.
Welcome to Gaia, and welcome home.

Question of the Day May 25:
Recently, Angelina Jolie made an informed personal choice to undergo preventive surgery. She had a Double Mastectomy to prevent the possibility of developing breast cancer due to a gene she carries and the experience of her own mother's death at age 56, I believe, from ovarian cancer.

It is a complex decision . . .
I was considering this morning, that I can't believe my birthday will be here in only a week.

We are very much a Global Community, so here's a way to feel even more connected and globally aware. Thanks to Anna, Gien, and Meenakshi for finding and helping discover this clock widget.
Click on a place to see time there. If this clock thingy doesn't work for you, here a site listing current times in 636 global locations:
Click on the little map to see a much bigger one with counts! [Note: this currently is not working and we're trying to figure out why. To get to the larger current day's map, click here.] This will be only approximate info, but interesting. It counts only one visit per day from a given computer, to our community Main Page. It does not distinguish visitors and members.
The two maps above and below are independent and are measuring slightly different data on slightly different daily schedules. Neither map is completely accurate !!!
The Daily Visitor map below shows visits to the community Main Page over the last 24 hours, updated several times a day. We're exploring the usefulness of this.
Also, please tell the Network Creator if you find this Home Page too slow-loading because of these widgets.
