A shared cape and tiara

I answered the question "What would you do with a tiara and a cape?" as posted by the Red Tent Sisters.

What a marvellous question - for two reasons...

1 - Because every woman has the right to decide what 'power' means to her. As does every child. As does every man.

2 - Because the question doesn't imply one must share but simply offers an idea. How often do we get an idea for rumination offered with no strings? (sometimes, but not often enough)

3 - Because the very posting of the question has started a dialogue online between busy folks who have left total strangers a few words of encouragement.

Building community doesn't have to be on the grand gesture scale. You build community simply by offering an idea and letting it grow as it will.
