How do you define your community? I took another walk out Bear Valley Trail yesterday, this time in the afternoon. Went with a dear friend. It was stunningly beautiful and very social. We stopped and talked to people here and there, both coming and going.  Some people I’ve known since they were kids, or young parents. Others are more recent arrivals  — they’re all part of the community. Being a weekday there weren’t a lot of tourists, so a good balance of local and non-local, as well as two gorgeous Norwegian horses.

Community is more than local folks though. For me it includes family, friends, people I’ve worked with in my career, or on political campaigns across the county. Grateful for you all. How do you define your community?
