From the home of Jaque of Larks & Japes
I came home thinking I'd be all refreshed and have new energy, but all I could think of was all the work I had to do and how much nicer long roads lined with trees and a cabins in the woods are. Connecting to nature and other's can be such a challenge for me working from home in New York, but I really long for it. Maybe it's just how the vast majority of us live. Wake up, work, eat, sleep, repeat.
I watched this film, Connected, on Netflix, as I stitched a project yesterday. It opens and closes with the quote above, which I later found is a much debated quote. Here's another supposedly more accurate version:
"When we try to pick out anything by itself we find that it is bound fast by a thousand invisible cords that cannot be broken, to everything in the universe. "
Struck me. Reminded me of this post about interconnectivity, a world bound in secret knots.
Here's to making an effort to stay connected in a more personal way. Not sure how, but I guess I making a small gesture right here, right now. So what's going on with you? Caught any frogs lately? Made any thing cool? Discovered a great new recipe?
Hope you're having a great day.
