I have come to rely on my extended learning community. It never fails that someone is always comes to my aid and helps me brainstorm, solve a problem, or point me in a direction I may or may not have known about when I started.
Today, in the Chicago area, we experienced our third largest snowfall in history. We recently moved to a new home in the fall. What shocked me was the sense of community on my street. All of my new neighbors were out, each helping each other shoveling the 18-24″ drifts that were deposited. Finish your drive, then go to the next one and start helping.
A group of us helped a 79 year old neighbor get is car, which was stuck in his driveway, back in his garage.
It is such a great feeling when everyone, both face to face and virtual, pitches in to help. The amplification effect ripples in positive ways.
For the first time that I can remember, a second consecutive snow day. Hoping to get some reading, writing, and reflecting done.
