Because one day of Thanksgiving is not enough (7 of 7)

Finally, a day late, due to an unexpectedly full day yesterday, I'm thankful for connections. One of my favorite things in the world is to touch into little invisible connections, especially between strangers. I like meeting eyes with someone I don't know at an event and recognizing each other as of a piece in that moment, or being in public spaces where I and a bunch of people I don't know share the space and/or time without necessarily even thinking about or acknowledging it.

I'm thankful for all the ways we are connected to each other, and how many different experiences we are all having all the time, and for the occasional stepping back to the perspective of sharing in that variety, alone and together.
