Collaborating is messy, but sure beats the alternative

I have been forcing myself to collaborate with others lately. What a pain in the butt. I can clearly see why I have avoided this. It is so much cleaner and convenient to rely on myself. However, I have undeniably learned so much. And the people I have connected with anchor me and make me stronger. And I provide the same for them.

And... now I am not all alone in my quest. Unfolding your passion and gifts in the world is not easy. There are set-backs. Your heart gets broken. The support and anchoring of others of inestimable value. It may be essential. At the very least, the connections open doors that would not open otherwise.

So yes, sometimes things that could be so simple if you were relying on yourself get drawn out and take lots of energy. It can be frustrating. It feels like having an intimate relationship with numerous people (as if a significant other and immediate family are not challenging enough). But I curiously find myself not wanting to trade it for anything in the world.

My life has more richness. And they are my people. We rely on each other to go where we want to go. So I suck up the frustration and keep moving forward.

Wanna come along? There's a seat on the bus for you.

Just looking at the Fairfield pic ( or Tynwald St School as it was back then ) and a blast from the past it was! My old mate and neuoibghr from Christian road, Keith Stowell, much as I remember him (as I moved away about a year later), plus Mark Gawn, David Moore and so many faces that I recall from those days, but whose names I just can't recall! Funny how I end up finding faces from the past, but had to come here to Canada to do so! Would love to know if there are any more old pics from those days at Tynwald st. / Fairfield!
