For those of you reading this blog... everything you find here:
• Takes planning.
• Takes patience.
• Takes a community.
This stuff doesn’t happen overnight. It doesn’t happen without effort. And it doesn’t happen in isolation. One can’t make a community by oneself.
You could try but - like one-handed clapping - it’s only effective in limited circumstances.
Remember: You might not always get everything you want - and unfortunately sometimes you might not even achieve what you need - but your chances are greater if you ask for help, actively seek it and contribute to the needs of others.
You’re each other’s best resource.
