Community


 “We are all longing to go home to some
place we have never been — a place
half-remembered and half-envisioned
we can only catch glimpses of from time
to time. Community. Somewhere, there
are people to whom we can speak with
passion without having the words catch in
our throats. Somewhere a circle of hands
will open to receive us, eyes will light up
as we enter, voices will celebrate with us
whenever we come into our own power.
Community means strength that joins our
strength to do the work that needs to be
done. Arms to hold us when we falter.
A circle of healing. A circle of friends.
Someplace where we can be free.”

I've been searching for this place. I know its out there, I've had glimpses of it over the past couple of years. What stands in the way seems to be challenges of geography and money. I like to think that I'm in a phase of life where I am building a foundation for one day achieving this dream, to be in a place that makes my heart sing each and everyday.

So for now I count my blessing each day. A ray of sunshine, full belly laughs, a good conversation with friends, a well brewed cup of tea or coffee, hugs and smiles. I'm fortunate to have found pockets of community quite literally spanning the globe. And thank goodness for the internet and modern technology for letting me continue to connect with them.
