The Tribe


It was a day. Colorless. Winter. Hopeless. Grey. She wandered aimlessly...unsure of where it was she was going...or what it was she was doing...or when it was that she was going to arrive.

One foot in front of another. One day..and then another. Seeking out color. Seeking out light. Seeking out answers to an endless cycle of un-answerable questions.

She stumbled. She fell. And - as she picked herself back up and began to look around - she found that she'd fallen into a gaggle of like minded souls.

They beckoned and called to her. They invited her in. They embraced and held her. Uplifted.

She found her wings. She found her voice. And together - with her newfound tribe surrounding her - she danced. She sang. She flew.
