Do you make connections?

As I was walking across the Target parking lot, I saw this little connector on the ground. And it got me thinking about connections.

It's always good when we can help others to connect with others. Our lives are so fractured these days that any connections that can be created or encouraged are good.

What ways are you connecting others to others in your life? Professionally? Personally? Are you making any steps to increase the amount of connection you have with others?

By the way, this is one of those posts based on an obvious concept. I know you know my point. I'm just reminding you about it. And asking you to consider doing something about it.

I seem to have a knack for meeting my virtual friends in real life... I have met several of my blog readers in person in other countries! (They're linked in my sidebar.) :D

Paul,

I recently started a Meetup on meetup.com because I found myself complaining about how I have no "active" friends in CT (where you actually do things with them, not just facebook or whatever.) Anyhoo, suddenly I am BUSY! Not because of the meetup, but I believe because I decided to ACT and it is bringing the good stuff flowing to me! Cool

And Elizabeth - glad you made a connection here!
