We’re all strangers connected …

We’re all strangers connected …

We’re all strangers connected by what we reveal, what we share, what we take away—our stories. I guess that’s what I love about books—they are thin strands of humanity that tether us to one another for a small bit of time, that make us feel less alone or even more comfortable with our aloneness, if need be.

– Libba Bray

Just started reading Daniel Siegel’s “The Whole-Brain Child.” Highly recommend, so far. Co-author Tina Payne Bryson. What has grabbed me so far is the gravity of attunement – “how we connect deeply with another person and allow them to feel felt.” When we are in tune with each other, we are joined together. And isn’t that the whole point? Also why I love reading books and blogs. I feel connected to you, dear reader. Just as I feel connected to these poets and thinkers.
