Lately I’ve been thinking quite a bit about how to make facilitate changes in my life. While some of the answers of what to do are quite simple, I like to understand as best I can what’s going on. Perhaps that’s my flaw, perhaps it’s a strength.
In a word, I’ve been meditating on infrastructure. What is it and how do I harness the power of personal (or personalized infrastructure). But before we go any further, what is infrastructure?
the basic, underlying framework or features of a system or organization.
“infrastructure.” Dictionary.com Unabridged (v 1.1). Random House, Inc. 24 Jul. 2008.
It’s so simple. Infrastructure is what supports or makes up a system or organization. A trellis is the infrastructure that helps a vine to grow up the side of a house. The earth is the infrastructure that supports human and animal life. The Sabbath is the infrastructure that allows us to enter into the rhythm of creation – to both work and rest. To do and to acknowledge that we are dependent on God.
