The delight of not being singular

Our English language values precision.

Words sit in boxes. And we talk about “dotting the ‘i’s and crossing the ‘t’s.”

Yet life is not singular, and neither is action discrete.

We live on a connected continuum.

I do, and I keep on doing – present continuous.

And who I am is an expression of being, beyond my skin.

Like the climbing wild honeysuckle, we only have an identity because of who has surrounded us.

Finding our growth entwined in the lives of others.
