How are we connected?

By running streams, the atoms, the human experience of conception and birth…

Finding our place in lineage of history, surrounded by the nature of environment

What comes first, the chicken or the egg?

Connected… we are all connected, physically, spiritually, emotionally, intellectually, environmentally, technologically, historically…

So why do so many humans on the planet feel isolated?

  1. Some more thoughts on being connected, and I think this may have to do with having Asperger’s as well.

    When I was young, I really could not connect or “relate” to other kids in school, in junior high there was maybe one person I had as a friend to do things with, but I felt more connected to people on television or a music band on the radio.

    Today, except for the fact that I am able to see a pastoral counselor on a regular basis, the only real connections I have are on the internet, and that includes my friend Jim who moved away a few years ago, we still stay in touch online. Since I am still spending most of my time in front of the computer, I hope I will have more to contribute with my writing to the online Autistic community.

  2. Thank-you Bill for your comment and thoughts. As we get older, we do reflect on how we are connected and affected by those connections whether in film in family or simply by association. Everyone appears to be running around with busy busy lives… we try to make a point (at least I do) to respond where and when I am able.
    Thank-you for your special message about my mother – she is a joy to have around and I have learned much from her: her daily mantra is to be happy, always smile and say please and thank-you! I feel blessed to be able to share my mother with the world. Many people met her in Edinburgh (the photos above are by one of the delegates, Mike Williams).
    Kind regards,
    Leo – keep smiling 🙂

  3. Hi Leo.

    I know we’re connected in the sense that what we do, for good or bad cannot help but affect the people around us, yet at the same time I am still very isolated as no one has the time to get back to me, so the local community’s lack of interest in my gifts, abilities and work has a negative effect on me and my family, as well as on the local community itself.

    I see your mother just turned 80, wow! God Bless her. My mother passed away last year, a year almost to the day that we lost our daughter Robyn. My all time favourite character actor, Leonard Nimoy, and personal hero of mine has also passed away and that has also affected me, we were connected. He was one of the few celebrities that I have actually had dreams about meeting face to face, though we never did.
