Community comes in a variety of forms. Today we experienced a slice of community that doesn't happen often. It was at a wedding and many of the guests were friends that we haven't seen in a long time. People that in times past we have spent considerable time with but whose life paths have diverged from ours.
In this kind of situation, I can be quite content with one or two solid conversations and today was good to me in that regard. It was encouraging to hear, in some detail, the story of a business start-up and share in both the challenging times as well as times of victory and growth.
I believe that at the core of every successful venture is a solid community of friends and a strong support structure. I experienced that again today and am grateful.
