17: hot soup

Life is heating up.

Nearing its boiling point. 
And when you boil it down, it's all about making connections.

Connections between:
man and woman, woman and man
man and man, woman and woman
parent and child, child and parent

man and nature
life and death

rhythm and melody
harmony and discord

mutually resonant worldviews
opposing philosophies

the human and the divine
the individual and the universe

teacher and pupil
pupil and teacher

the vagabond and the painstaking traveler
the lost and the found

brother and sister, brother and brother, sister and sister


These are, in essence, all human connections. 
(Indeed, since our point of view is by default the human one.)

And when you stop to think about them, you'll see that they're really quite miraculous.
