Reverb 10: Community

December 7 – Community Prompt: Community. Where have you discovered community, online or otherwise, in 2010? What community would you like to join, create or more deeply connect with in 2011? (Author: Cali Harris)

I am blessed to be a part of many wonderful communities. This year I have been so inspired to "meet" so many artsy mamas via the blogging community. It has been really nice to read other women's stories, whether it is about struggling to find time and energy in the day to create, or struggling to overcome our self-doubts which block us from creating. In mothering and art, it is nice to know I am not alone.

Here are just some of the many amazing creative women who have inspired me this year:

Kim Klassen
Amelia Maness-Gilliland
Lisa Lectura
Cori Howard

In 2011, I would like to connect more with artsy/spiritual mamas, and find an artistic mentor. I have always wanted a mentor, and it has never come to pass for me. I hope in this ongoing experiment with photography/art/writing, that I will find a direction and meet a person who can guide me through creative and business growth. That's kind of scary for me to put out there, but there it is.

What community would you like more of in your life?
