Why not err on the side of the relational? Why not repent of all the insidiously goofy ways we try to keep realization of community at a distance? Life’s too short not to. Our life is one long process of mutual aid, and what a relief it is when people act on this knowledge. I want to keep within me and hold to the wit and the sensitivity of spirit to see, feel, appreciate, fear and revere the inescapable fact of my own caught-uppedness in the web of other people’s kindness.
