Unfortunately circumstances were that I could not make it to my friend’s, Steven and Brenna, wedding yesterday. The wedding was in Buffalo, Kansas and I am here in Wisconsin. This was due to me causing a human error and I am extremely sad because of it. I don’t often make clerical mistakes and this one cost me. What it did do was give me an emotional calibration to how much I really do love the people in my life and that even though we can deal with not being able to see them all the time doesn’t change how much you really care for them. It also doesn’t replace the fact that sometimes you really do need to have contact with those people. There is no substitute for actual human connection and we can never forget that. We are an animal that travels in herds and needs constant love and human contact to survive.
This is just a reminder to know who you want and need in you life and let them know. Connect with them. Listen to them. Love them. Most importantly though, be open to the people around you that you are unfamiliar with though because they sometimes will turn out to be of great value and weight in your life. Project Kinect is about how we work as a community and need that human connection to move our community forward in a positive direction forward. WE ARE ALL INVOLVED!!
No Man is an Island by John Donne
No man is an island entire of itself; every man
is a piece of the continent, a part of the main;
if a clod be washed away by the sea, Europe
is the less, as well as if a promontory were, as
well as a manor of thy friends or of thine
own were; any man’s death diminishes me,
because I am involved in mankind.
And therefore never send to know for whom
the bell tolls; it tolls for thee.
