What is Your Community?
What is Your Community? Is it your neighborhood, a club or organization, your friends, like-minded people, your church, your political party, your favorite hangouts, your city, country, world? Or is it just the feeling of connection you have with some or all of these things? Is your community built on relationships, a sense of place, a sense of sharing, or simply a grounding in who you are in the midst of it all?
I'm participating in an art and literature project for the Biennial of the Americas, in cooperation with PlatteForum and the Lighthouse Writers Workshop in Denver, Colorado. My project is called "Homes Within, Communities Without." All this month, I'm considering the question: what is my community? Please ponder this idea with me. You're invited to share your answers at the Girls Trek Too blog. I'm eager to read your thoughts.
