"Our hunger to belong is the longing to find a bridge across the distance from isolation to intimacy. Everyone longs for intimacy and dreams of a nest of belonging in which one is embraced, seen and loved. Something within each of us cries out for belonging. We can have all the world has to offer in terms of status, achievement, and possessions. Yet without a sense of belonging it all seems empty and pointless.May today bring each of us into a greater sense of belonging with our own spirits, our family and friends, and the world around us.
And, Richard, wherever you are, may you feel a true sense of peace and belonging. We love you and miss you.
