Why was there a need to always associate social activities among like-minded people around the one primary thing they shared in common?
I hear ya Mono! I was thinking of this a lot this weekend. I feel partly at home with poly folk. I feel partly at home with people who have the same disability as me. Another part relates to back-to-the-landers and off grid-ers. Yet another part geeks out with musicians.... raw foodies...
So, I hear what you're saying.
I've spent most of my life feeling like I don't fit in. For all sorts of reasons. So, I guess it's a smattering of different communities put together that helps a person feel at home. Or maybe, a close family who really gets you, (chosen family included) and other communities that share some interests.
Wow, I'm really tired. I don't think I'm making sense.
