I have been thinking about the pursuit of recognition and fame as another thing to #resist lately. Maybe it's a few conversations I've had recently, or the long drawn out work of realizing I'm good enough for what I'm doing and who I am (and actually being proud of what I've done) that set me on this trajectory. But I've been thinking more about the importance of friends and community over this idea that I've always had about proving something to a lot of people I don't know. Maybe it's more important to focus on the small groups of people we know or meet along the way rather than trying to impress some mass of readership or a fanbase. Maybe our power to change things doesn't have to be on a scale any larger than the block we live on or the county we live in.
