On Saturday, I went ice fishing with the First Peoples @Seneca community. It was a warm and welcoming group who I met during the International Development Day performance the week before. Wow how opportunities lead to more opportunities! I made friends, caught eleven fish and received a new nickname, "Zibi" (Zeebee) which translates from Ojibwe to "little stream."
Peggy brought home made lunch and snacks, all of which were delicious and healthy. We drilled holes in four feet of ice and caught fish that were six inches long. I laughed more than I've laughed in a long time and felt accepted without a moments hesitation. I never once felt like an introvert or like I needed a break from interactions.
What a fun time!
