Tending the Wires

Dr. King said that we are “caught in an inescapable network of mutuality,” and many of us identify with the Interdependent Web as an image of the complex web of relationships which encompasses all beings. But many of our relationships depend on the tangible web of wires which make possible our connections via phone and internet. And these wires only continue to connect us if they are tended and maintained.

What will you do today to tend to some connection that matters to you?

  1. It wasn’t something I did today, but something I did a day or two ago that come to fruition today. I had left phone messages for two people I haven’t spoken with in awhile saying I’d like to hear from them and catch up–one cousin and one client. Today they both phoned back, and I had nice chats with both.

    I have decided that I will return to sending notes, however short, to people with whom I have some contact, be it intimate or casual, and spend the $$ it costs to mail it. I think that all of the encouragement that we “save money” by using other methods, etc. is forcing us to forget that a handwritten note received in the mailbox has a special quality that means a lot to most people.
