Some days, contrails are nonexistent, having been blown away by atmospheric conditions. Other days, contrails are everywhere, slicing the great expanse of the sky into more manageable quadrants. However this illusion of partitioned sky is only visible when earthbound looking up. Sail into the sky and you will see these wispy contrails rarely physically meet. Instead, one might pass 3,000 feet over or under another, merely passing by without giving a second thought as to how it may interact with another from a different point of view. The sky that appeared partitioned is still intact, interrupted only by the vapor that points in almost every direction.
The world we live in cannot be partitioned into various quadrants. We may try to view our lives as isolated from another’s, but who we are impacts the expanse we live in. Try as we may, we are unable to separate ourselves from the world around us. To see this, all we must do is slightly shift the angle we are viewing our world from.
My thoughts here may appear from some angles to be partitioned off from each other, and in turn, your world. But each idea, decision, action and event in my life will somehow influence the sky we live in. And that sky will impact you. Just as each idea, decision, action, and event in your life will influence the sky, which in turn, impacts me. After all, it’s one sky.
