People Power

A sort-of gratitude journal note:

On Sunday, I chatted with my friend Gee at Ulises, the book space he co-directs, about how we keep ourselves motivated in our arts projects. I often sign up for classes to give myself structure and accountability; Gee said that he finds strength in collaborating with people. He’s really good at that.

Our conversation reminded me of all of the people, lately especially, whom I’ve been fortunate to bounce ideas with, seek advice from, feel at home with. I count in this my husband, Mike, and our dog, Bella; professors and students at Penn; and artists and friends at Vox Populi, ICA, and many other spaces in Philadelphia and beyond.

Just feeling grateful for being able to combine powers with so many smart, kind people, and for community.
