We Are Social Creatures


I’m currently working on my second book, and as fate would have it, while I was trying to craft my explanation about the enormity of the idea that humans are “social creatures,” I received this wonderful montage from photographer Rannie Turingan (in fact, I know two people in it!).

Our need for connection and intimacy with others is the cornerstone of mental health.  Children learn how to love and connect from watching their parents.  How does your couch life look?  These people all have it going on! Thanks Rannie – very powerful.
