We are all connected in obvious and mysterious ways. Examples abound. Think of naturals resources we gather from ecosystems across the world to manufacture into products that we then sell to one another. And, the fungi networks wound together beneath the soil working in partnership with trees in the forest. Or, the downpour of clouds in the Amazon Rainforest that drains nutrients into the Pacific Ocean causing ginormous blooms of phytoplankton and, therein, a rich supply of food for fish. Ecosystems alive competing for balance and survival. Our threads are intertwined.
I reach my hand out today and await with wonder who will shake it and what invisible impact it will make…like the batting of butterfly wings in a grandma’s garden on the other side of the world.
