Things I Like — A Greater Whole

Belonging to a family.

United voices in a choir.

Teamwork in its biggest sense.

There are many names for this uniquely human experience.

Regardless of linguistics, this raw, awesome power of being wholly involved, and simultaneously so with other equally passionate people; coming together to create something bigger than anyone on their own; this I sometimes think is the meaning of life.

Yesterday we built a playground with 60-odd volunteers from 4-60.

It took a village, as the cliche goes, and as the school marks its centenary and we mark a year in this city, it felt like the perfect, exhausting, welcoming sense of whole. Like coming home.
