thought for food

so we hosted a second seder this past week and as a part of an icebreaker (that we eventually used at the end of the night) was to write down on a slip of paper the answer to the question:
what does it mean to be free?
there were some serious responses, some light-hearted jests and such. this morning on the train i was recalling them and had a thought.

to me, freedom is having a circle of friends and family such that i do not feel afraid to share my inner geek moments. it amazes me that there are scenarios and environments where curiosity and innovation are discouraged. i'm very fortunate to have been brought up never being hindered, always pushed to see how far i could go with my ideas.
