find me here

24 local is here to stay 1

‘Once our basic needs are taken care of, the things that we want most of all as humans is to matter.’*

This feels local.

Perhaps the best Christmas gift of all is for someone to help  another feel local, here – at home in who they are and what they have and what they can do.

Each of us is capable of this.

When we find each other, we can say we are local, find us here.

You belong here.**
