On Being Human

This week I have been reminded of the value that the humanities, aptly named, bring to our lives: art, music, literature, drama, dance, language, philosophy. I am also reminded daily, in this bucolic island atmosphere in which I live, of the profound sense of connectedness to be found in both nature and community.

The humanities ground us and also allow our hearts to soar. Nature similarly gives us a sense of both depth and expansiveness. And community — family, friends, neighbors, coworkers, society — balances our solitude, both critically important to our well-being.

Each day without fail I include some form of art. Each day I renew my connectedness with nature and with my community. And in so doing, each day I am reborn.

I wish the same for each of you.
