We are a family attempting to document our Life Stance in full. These pages represent our Manifesto, our Creed and our Inspiration.
“Life stance” – The style and content of an individual’s or a community’s relationship with that which is of ultimate importance; the presuppositions and commitments of this, and the consequences for living which flow from it.
A life stance is a set of interlinked, articulated system of beliefs about life, human nature and our existence connected to norms and values that are derived out of this view.
We wanted a site that would allow us to define ourselves as a family. This site is a public declaration of our intentions, opinions, objectives and motives, a formal statement of our spiritual beliefs, a formalisation of our personal system of principles and morals and a repository for all the aspects of life that both inspire and support our sense of who we are. It is both a living, evolving document and a process that allows us to winnow and refine what matters to us – to enable us to stand behind that which is of ultimate importance to us all.
- Manifesto attempts to define the reasoning behind the site and the name we have chosen.
- SI:M and SI:F are a place for our inspirational Tumblr accounts
- SI:Photo is a place for our SIPS specific photographs.
- SI:Links is a Blogroll for sites that share some aspect of our intent or ethos.
Some entries in the main blog will be placed here to make sure the key elements do not get lost.
At present this site is driven forward by myself, the Standard Issue Male: CatJuju and my lovely wife, the Standard Issue Female:Snippety Giblets., and in time I am sure it will include the additional input from our Standard Issue Child. I look forward to seeing how we grow as a family and how this is expressed via our new digital experiment.
