Too often, I forget that I am part of a community, a society, a world. There are countless moments in my life when I shut myself off from others and have drifted off alone. Fantasy, ritual, and being reactive has at times furthered this distance from others.
As we all maneuver and make our way through life we make relationships with others even if we don’t realize it. Looking, talking, smiling, touching, eating, walking, working, playing – all these activities are likely to bring us into contact with others.
And the way we act and react does make a difference. A simple smile or a touch of a hand can make someone else’s day. A hug can often be therapeutic and breaks the ice of solitude. A kind word resonates deeply, impresses, and is remembered.We are all part of the interconnected world; referred to by some as humanity; and we get love and power simply from knowing and practicing this.
This project aims to remind us of this true power with the hope of creating a shift of being that leads to action; not so much to change the world, but to remind us what we already are---Interconnected.
