You Are Not Alone
How do you start to see the complex relationships that make up a community? The first time I sat around a climber’s campfire at 19, I could sense that though our lives were superficially different with jobs and responsibilities, something greater connected those gathered around the fire. It was the first time I felt a sense of belonging. Since then, my community has grown, and encompasses just about anyone who understands dawn light and type three fun. But getting into the spider-webbing network can be difficult even if you know it’s there. Today, we present two stories from women–one a climber and one a creator–about the moment when the random became connected at a time when it mattered most. Gather round.
