"We are like islands in the sea, separate on the surface but connected in the deep." ― William James
While we may appear separate, distinct, and independent on the surface, the connections that bind us transcend the boundaries of our individual lives. Just as the depths of the ocean link the islands, our shared experiences, emotions, and humanity establish a thread that unites us all.
Acknowledging this connection encourages us to navigate life with a sense of openness and mutual respect, fostering a deeper appreciation for the complexity and beauty of the human experience.
I was reminded of just how connected we are this week. My business may be about selling jewelry, but the connections I have made over the years are what really make what I do so beautiful. The people I connect with breathe life into my work with their appreciation and it brings so much joy into my life. It's a reminder that we connect through shared experiences, and the connection through art and beauty is definitely one of the most impactful. It is art, in all its forms, that makes us feel and reminds us of the beauty that exists in this world.
