hula hoop sunset

Headline: Community Out of Print and Globalization.  by- adventureclubviral

bored with the headlines, i took a sunset walk after work. by chance, i took a seat in perfect view of a new friend of mine at the beach. only the night before i shared sushi rolls with her and mutual friends of ours. she regaled us about her afternoon learning how to hula hoop- to my astonishment- it was something she had never tried before. i liked that she randomly stumbled upon a group of people, borrowed a hula hoop and tried something new. i liked that i saw her the next day doing it again.

so i have come to figure. the current events of a community are not always what you read about today or what is written for tomorrow. neither are they necessarily the events you buy tickets for, nor plan your week around. communities are about sharing events with other people. the adventure is in learning new things and meeting new people. and i suppose the more things you know and the people you connect with, the smaller the world becomes.

after the sunset, i approached that silhouette of hips, hair and hula hoop that was my new friend. i picked up a hula hoop myself. she said to me, “after i master the hula hoop, i will learn to sing the blues.”
