Tenuous Connections
All connections are by their very nature, tenuous, hesitant, unreliable, yet it is our human
conundrum that we insist on forging connectivity constantly to everything in our lives. Indeed, we
are driven by the need to understand our relationship to the living world and our place in it.
Connection presupposes the notion that two disparate things are attached in some way, but these
points of connection could also be points of fractured experience, the exact spot where breakage
can occur, therefore allowing that the moments that define our human experience are tenuous at
best. In the end, all that we do is informed by these connections whether or not they are whole or
shattered. We rely on them. We need them. We constantly and inevitably seek them out.
