The Feel Good Idea Of The Day: Connected

When we try to pick out anything by itself, we find it hitched to everything else in the universe.
— John Muir

There is a great web connecting...everything.

As I look upon our decorated Christmas tree and the collection of ornaments, each piece is exquisite on its own, but it doesn't hold much meaning unless it's in context with the whole. An ornament from 1991 informed the choice of ornament in 1992. Yes, the Malibu Barbie ornament is beautiful, but she really struts her stuff when she hangs next to the 1920s Barbie ornament.

Christmas tree, full of joy and fun! December 2014.

This life is a tapestry. It is upon many colors of threads that we are bound. Stories are woven into a big ol' seven-layer taco dip, and I can't separate the guacamole from the sour cream. But darling, why would you want to, at any rate? It's all linked together despite our best efforts to break away. Say hello to that which you are woven against. We are connected. Hi there, how's it going?
