100 Words: Connection Confection

connection confection ubuntu africaIt’s easy to pretend it doesn’t matter.

Ever say, Ah, it doesn’t matter
that my ankle hurts or
where I shop or
what I do with the piles of wrapping paper or
what was wrapped in it.

The sweet truth is that it does matter.
Everything is connected.
Everything.
Everyone.
Suffering anywhere affects the whole. Joy, too.

Every choice ripples out, reverberates further out than you might expect.
Six degrees of separation? Maybe fewer degrees than that.

You make a difference whether you realize it or not.
That is the sweet truth.

So, what difference do you want to make?
