VJWC: The Dormant Volcano

“This is the power of gathering: it inspires us, delightfully, to be more hopeful, more joyful, more thoughtful: in a word, more alive. ” – Alice Waters

“I wish I was a dormant volcano because I get to hibernate for a long time.” My sister expressed a wish a long while ago. When someone rubs her the wrong way, she can explode and afterwards she returns to being a sweet beautiful vision.

My family is generally active in the world, but when we’re gathered together at home or in a motel room during our family road trips, we enjoy sleeping and resting like a family of hamsters in the same space. On second thought…more space is called for. 🙂


It’s great to gather with friends and talk about our latest research assignments and encourage each other when facing challenging, yet rewarding work situations. We also celebrate being able to multi-task with 30 tabs on a single window. 😉


Gathering with people with similar concerns to discuss the impact behind an inspirational film and how our trials are woven together can also empower us to make a difference in the world around us.
