Grace Paley’s “Traveling” emphasizes the importance of having and finding a community even in times of complete isolation. The connections communities share do not have to be concrete- it can be nature, spirituality, music, etc. These connections give social structure and form our society. In a world as growing as ours sometimes a community seems impossible or too distant of a reality to believe, when in-fact we are apart of communities we might not even be aware of. So many of us share the same interest or background experiences that in one way or another we can connect and come together as a whole community- as humans.
