Friday the 13th

In honor of today's date (Friday the 13th)
I don't believe in superstition. It's bad luck.

Very intereseting dynamic that plays out. You have a 'community' (a very accepting community) that comes together without a building in some of the most brutal weather and then disperse again like the wind (back to their daily settings).

Strikes me as a model that is some what missional.
