Prompt: Community. Where have you discovered community, online or otherwise, in 2010? What community would you like to join, create or more deeply connect with in 2011?
Since moving into the new community where I now live I have retained a shy distance which I'd like to ditch and really get to know the people I'm meeting. Especially the people at Church who have been so kind and welcoming and I still feel a bit socially awkward.
The last time I moved community came so much more quickly and easily as anybody who has worked in a school will probably have felt. Now, working for myself I do not have loads of fab colleagues around. However, I do have the joy of working with R and am also so glad his lovely Mum and Dad are nearby, although we must start varying the times we call round as it always seems to be exactly tea time / dinner time and it's starting to look a bit suspect!
The internet has allowed me to continue a sense of community with friends far and wide and introduced me to so many people through this blog, twitter, Facebook and the Handmade in Europe Artfire Guild. I really appreciate the chat, comments, links and laughs, thank you all.
