The internet, and more specifically, social media has changed so much our ability to interact with others. To find other like-minded individuals, regardless of how far away. Oceans can separate people who will find each other these days online. That is not to minimize the importance of connecting to people we come physically face to face with in passing in our everyday life. My Elder, Parisha, encourages us to expand our circle of acquaintances every single day. She says, “We expand life by including a new person in our life everyday. Not just a passing hello, but to know them and remember them; to care about them, to have affinity with them.”
