“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. Some  place where we can be free.” – Starhawk

    So so true. Community is what binds us together, and keeps us strong. Couldn’t be without it…..

      Such a powerful concept right?

      I think it’s important to speak the word aloud to remind us that it is not only individual experience that matters but the “Community” as a whole.
