While hiking one Saturday I saw this bird flying alone in the distance. I wish I knew what kind it was. However, it reminded me to not be afraid to fly alone.

One of the things I most enjoy is spending time with people who are actively working within their communities to increase the diversity, inclusion, and opportunities for all. I volunteered a day to cover an event for Y-WE (Young Women Empowered). The day included several opportunities for young women to mentor each other as well as share in mentorship from professionals, artists, and community activists of all ages. It warmed my heart when I got the negatives back and saw these images.
This year I was honored to be invited to participate in a weekend retreat called Community 2022. The purpose of this community is simply to commit to meeting once per year until 2022 and discuss personal and professional growth, global issues, and put action plans in place to improve the next year. One of my favorite aspects of this group was the intergenerational nature of the people involved. There were folks ranging from 14 to 86 in the same room sharing and learning from each other.
A block from where I spend much of my time working is a small botanical area. Just inside is a small waterfall. A perfect place to have a lunch outside or for a quick photo session. There's almost never anybody there. Thanks @chemobites for the impromptu session.
