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.


Hello everyone! I'm a technical writer by day, creative writer by night. I have a wild imagination yearning for more in life. I'm fascinated by many subjects that have developed into a sort of mental and physical wanderlust that ultimately leads me to experience a variety of cultural shocks. Welcome to my journey and looking forward to reading your blogs!

  1. I’m with your sister on the hibernating wish, lol. Our family is the same – napping together – strange. Thanks for participating! We definitely need others. Love the quotation.

  2. Gathering together to build wonderful memories with friends and family, as well as gathering together to build community and empowering us to make improvements in the world…try wonderful post!😊 💕
