Making Magic: Reverb13, Day 13

Reverb13, Day 13, Prompt:

The phrase “It takes a village” is often bandied about, in reference to child-rearing, running a business, just about everything. But if you’re anything like me, you may not be a natural born collaborator.

In 2014, how could you explore what community means to you?

It might be a question of sharing the load, asking for help or signing on someone with a complementary skill set. Or it could be about a creative collaboration that pushes you to explore new ideas and media.

Where might the alchemy be?

There is a lot of power in community. This year I found that I really dug into community online via social media, blogs, online courses with groups and forums..and what a rich experience that was and continues to be for me.  This time I want to dig even deeper and develop more in person community  in addition to the cultivating my virtual community as well.

Next year this will look like attending in person events like book clubs, cultural events, and meetups. I also want to push myself to have more meaningful, engaging conversations that go beyond what is on the surface. I would like to meet new people who push me to think differently. This is where the magic lies and I intend to experience more of that magic in 2014.
