Give Thanks for Human Connections….

Give thanks for  human connections…

Now that the big holidays have passed I have the nerve to say this…

We need each other.  We need togetherness.  In a time where many people drive in and out of their garages, never seeing or being seen by neighbors, we’ve become a bit isolated.  Some holidays force us to dust the furniture and invite people into our home.  That’s good for everyone because it changes us.  We have greater understanding, empathy, interest, love (or not) and common memories.  We feel more connected.

As you very well know, every month there’s a holiday, a birthday or a “5:00 somewhere” reason to get together. Using these excuses to connect could build a network of love and support with our own neighbors, friends and family.  Ooooh… we could make “connecting” a national pastime.  What would happen to American society then?  What might not happen?

Let’s think “connect” in 2013.

Hugs of Streamers and confetti upon your shoulders,

Sonja

P S  Please make a few extra cards for the folks who want to connect with others while they fight cancer.  They really appreciate it!  So do I !!!

Post Note:  I wrote this post after our latest national tragedy.  My thoughts are not gun control, abolition of violent video games or free mental health care; encouraging human connection is the only helpful input I have to offer.

      Wow, Theresa, this is wonderful news. I hope everyone has a lot of fun creating cards together. No worries on how long it’s been. We are all so busy keeping our selves and our people moving forward.

      Hugs, Sonja

      Greetings to your friends for me!

    What a wonderful idea, we too think that 2013 is the year to think about connection and our global community. Why not check out the offshoot of our Human Connection Project called Ping Colors at http://www.pingcolors.com. 🙂
