I’ve been with the swaying of the kelp forest at Monterey Bay Aquarium and the fish moving through. The sea gulls are raucous this time of year as their youngsters grow into their own ways to move through, and on, water, land, and sky. All of this flows through and reverberates in me.
This morning I read about a man who sits on a bench each morning to watch the sunrise and talk to those who walk by. He listens and has become a therapist for those who come to be with him. I read about a 99 year old woman who because of the pandemic becomes best friends with the two year old next door.
There are ribbons of connection flowing through us like ribbons of kelp.
Fred Rogers said: If only you could sense how important you are to the lives of those you meet, how important you can be to people you may never even dream of. There is something of yourself that you leave at every meeting with another person.
