Communities are groups of people with something in common. Theres the scientific community, the Asian community, the gay and Lesbian community, the Jewish community, the disabled community, the vegetarian community, the church community, the sex without partners community and on and on. You can declare yourself as part of a community or wait for others to declare you as part of a community. It will happen.
I'm a photographer, so does that include me in the photographer community? I imagine there is also the digital artist community, literature community so on and so forth. In the end are we not just part of the larger community of artists?
Perhaps this attraction to community is simply about our need to belong. If so, how do you explain hermits? Okay, hermits are the exceptions. But if communities are about people with something in common, then hermits constitute a community. Imagine their meeting announcement. Hermit community meeting. Tonight at eight. Dont come.
