The pandemic has brought a new awareness of the space between us.
The distance we stand apart.
Yet, it has also underlined the connection between us as people.
What we share, whether we can see it or not.
In particular, it is the sense of belonging, of not being whole on our own, which is precious.
And we have a choice.
We can honour this space and cultivate its fruitfulness, or we can retreat to our old transactional ways.
Or as David Whyte observed: ‘The conversation is not about the work. It is the work.’
