Sometimes a quiet Sunday in the shop brings a long-lost friend to the door- apologizing for her absence. What a gift! What a blessing!
I often think about how disconnected we are- isolated and involved in our own small worlds- we lose track of each other too easily. All this technology that makes our globe a village also works to keep us each in our own cubicle. Our sense of community is somehow replaced by a constant seeking of attention and approval through our online networks. We are left ungrounded, unattached, and often feeling empty and alone.
How much of this alone-feeling is causing the anger that is spewing out of our political campaigns these days? I have to wonder.
Thank you, Friend, for stopping in!
