Today's reverb prompt is:
Author: Cali HarrisI'm not sure I discovered new community in 2010, but I enhanced my relationships. It's an odd prompt because I've been holding on to the joy that I received lately so it felt only right to document this as both reverb and december daily, since I've been thinking of them daily. A few years ago I found an amazing book called Get It Scrapped! I then stalked the author a bit, and found the forums at her site. Now I know anyone who knows me knows I hang out there and it's my home. I know anyone who knows that place and hangs out there as well knows that trying to explain what a special community it is, verges impossible. I think my feelings would be best expressed in a monologue from the movie The Brady Bunch starring a talented Mr. Gary Cole as Mike Brady
Prompt: Community. Where have you discovered community, online or otherwise, in 2010? What community would you like to join, create or more deeply connect with in 2011?
"Our house is more important than money. This neighborhood is more important than money. Tell me. How many times have we borrowed each other's power tools or patched up each other's kids? We know so much about each other. I know that every January, Mr. Yeager is going to have that big Super Bowl party at his house. We know that every spring, Mrs. Simmons is going to have the prettiest daffodils on the block. We know that at 10:15 every Saturday morning, Mrs. Topping likes to walk through her living room naked. Call me old-fashioned, but these things are important, and they're not for sale. This is our neighborhood, and we're staying."ps if you haven't seen superstar, rent it and listen to mary katherine gallagher's monologue ;)
