Yesterday, we visited the art exhibit of a talented fiber artist friend. Inspired by the way fiber makes up our entire world, to me the most interesting part of her felted bowls were the solids and voids created by the varying thicknesses of the many layers of wool, and the play of light and shadows that formed as a result.
Later that evening, I had reason to marvel about that very same interconnectedness manifesting itself between us humans. I had promised a friend I’d previously only met via Instagram a start of a plant, and last night I delivered it to him. As I left his house, I saw an old friend (whom we hadn’t seen in 18 years or so) standing in the street. After dropping off the plant, we were heading out to dinner to meet him and a few other friends. Long story short – it turns out my new acquaintance and our old friend were longtime neighbors! How funny is THAT odd coincidence? It made me wonder how many other pleasant surprises we miss, by not exploring the weft of humanity.
