These past three weekends, I have had to remember to "come home" to myself.  When I felt overwhelmed, stifled, awkward, or uncomfortable, I remembered who I was, where I'm from, where I'm going, and though some people maybe never understand any of it, there exists -- someplace -- a community of like-minded individuals who do.I'm looking at the bookmark that debi made for each one of us roots, a piece of decorated cardboard with words by Starhawk:

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.
