Community

“Be not simply good; be good for something.”

Henry David Thoreau (1817-1862)

Henry Thoreau was not a joiner of things, though he kept a good company of friends. He preferred to be alone most days, wandering the fields and rivers of Concord, recording his observations.

No wonder I like him.

I too had not been much of a joiner of things and preferred to be alone most days, mostly in nature.

Until I started running. Actually, to be honest, it was much later than the start. It wasn’t until I started running with people that I saw the impact a community can make. A person can move a mountain, but a community can shift a continent.

Here are some of the communities that shifted mine, internally. And I am learning of more every day.
