“Snowflakes, leaves, humans, plants, raindrops, stars, molecules, microscopic entities all come in communities. The singular cannot in reality exist.”
-Paula Gunn Allen, Grandmothers of the Light, 1991
This week we’re talking about community. When we think of the whole grand concept of “we are all one” – it’s kind of a stepping stone to think first of our own communities. We belong to lots of little groups – our families, our neighborhoods, our clubs and organizations. And these communities all function because of the people involved with them! They become an entity unto themselves. They have a life of their own. And these smaller communities are all part of larger communities, too – which in turn interact and grow with others. It all starts with each of us as individuals, and expands to include the entire planet.
