All my life’s a circle … and I’m grateful for that. Yes, I’m fascinated with the concept of community, of connection. And the circle is the heart of it, I’m convinced. We have circles of connection among friends, among neighborhoods … they pull us together. When we sit in a circle, we see every face, hear every voice, notice each person individually, and we all are equal. In ancient times, and in modern times, the circle has been the place for thoughtful discussion and for conscious decision-making.
