“You are you even before you grow into understanding you are not anyone, worthless, not worth you. Even as your own weight insists you are here, fighting off the weight of nonexistence. And still this life parts your lids, you see you seeing your extending hand as a falling wave— I they he she we you turn only to discover the encounter to be alien to this place. Wait. The patience is in the living. Time opens out to you. The opening, between you and you, occupied, zoned for an encounter, given the histories of you and you— And always, who is this you? The start of you, each day, a presence already— Hey you—”


― Claudia Rankine, Citizen: An American Lyric

What does community mean? What does it mean to be a good citizen of place?  What are our place myths and narratives that need revisiting and even retelling? These and other big questions surrounding place will be discussed at Instar Lodge’s upcoming FREE public Summer Place Community Conversation, co-hosted with Good Work Institute at Kite’s Nest, August 19th at 3:00pm.
