I’m starting to feel more like a human being again. After spending so many months working nights and weekends I’m not surprised that the lack of human contact has morphed my psych into a primordial loner. I became more aware of this during a family outing to the Ringling Bros Circus. Being out with my family did wonders for my well being, and I’m sure that all of my girls were oozing with giddy love for their old dad/husband. That was absolutely wonderful in every way, but what I want to touch on is the social exchange I had with an older gentleman.
Based on his stories, I’m pretty sure he attended the first Ringling Bros Circus ever. We shared stories of our children, dreams, and ambitions. We connected as human beings through our experiences. That is what I have been missing from my life, lately. I find that the older I get the more social interaction I crave.
Every person has a story to tell. We are all walking collectives of mini history, and somewhere out there is our audience, whether large or small. This is what makes our world so great today. Our technology connects us with that audience no matter where we are. This is the greatest time in human history for the telling of the story so tell yours and read mine.
Note to self: I need to make a personalized business card!
