    Hi Carolyn, thanks so much for reading and replying. I love your way of thinking about community. That's a beautiful way to be in the world.

    I've always considered myself very spiritual, even though I don't follow one particular path. For me personally, I think it makes me more self-aware of my actions and subsequently I have more compassion when I think about my community. It serves as a reminder that even if I sometimes may feel isolated (especially in this technological age!), I am still connected to everyone and everything. I have to take responsibility for what I will inevitably share with the world, and I am learning to be more positive and engaging as time goes on.
