I have just returned from a mini vacation to Santa Cruz, California. There I stayed with my dear friend and sister priestess, Bryn. I also had the opportunity to spend some time with two other friends and sister priestesses, Lunaea and Julie. We had such a lovely time together. Even though I do not get to see these women as often as I would like, the time we do have together is precious. I am struck by the thought that we create community when we gather together--even for just a little while.
We caught up on each others lives, talked about new endeavors coming our way, shared art we had made and I even got a mini lesson on a particular technique for beading!
At home, I also belong to a community of like-minded loving women traveling their own paths which very fortunately intersect with mine on a very regular basis.
Community is important to me. It is the art of sharing, caring, encouraging and supporting one another. Community revitalizes me and keeps my steps light upon my path.
I am most grateful for community--here and there.
