Fair warning – this MAY be a bit of a ramble. Just follow along with me here, if you don’t mind. 🙂
So for a few months now, I’ve been really focused on the idea of “community”.
As I mentioned in the Discourse: Eliminating Toxicity post, I’ve been in fandoms of assorted kinds for all of my adult life. Gaming, LARPing, sci-fi, etc – but one of the things I’ve done that I am most proud of is working for assorted local conventions.
There is something so very satisfying to me about being one of the organizers of an event that brings people together. Seeing everyone enjoying themselves, united in some kind of common love for something, truly brings joy to my heart.
