web of life

Alexi had to work this past weekend. The boys and I attended parties Saturday and Sunday, and I had conversations with many people whom I didn't already know. I found myself dwelling on the ways connections are made, random and not so random. Saturday, I encountered someone who is connected to my friend, the host, because his late wife was my friend's patient before she died. Sunday, someone I talked with knew the host of that party because they had once had a mutual friend. They've both lost contact with the other person, but remained friends with each other.

What a web of life we weave all around us.
