For tonio and commonbeauty, because I am thinking they both have made a space like this here within the vastness of the web and I mourn their departures. I wish it for all of us here or elsewhere in our walk of living, but especially for these two who opened their hands to me when I asked to join the circle.

Somewhere, there are people
to whom we can speak with passion
without having the words catch in our throats.
Somewhere a circle of hands will open to receive us,
eyes will light up as we enter, voices will celebrate with us
whenever we come into our own power.
Community means strength that joins our strength
to do the work that needs to be done.
Arms to hold us when we falter.
A circle of healing. A circle of friends.
Someplace where
we can be free."
Starhawk from Dreaming the Dark
