This tweet from a pediatric play therapist found its way into my feed. And it stopped me in my tracks. Children isolated during XRT therapy remain connected to their parents by a spool of string. Child holds one end and the parent holds the other. Magic string.
Beyond appealing to the concrete developmental place where kids are at it serves to remind us that the need to connect at our weakest moments is a basic human necessity.
Be it by human touch, global digital network, or 10 feed of colorful string.
We should be inspired by the smallest things. Or the longest things.
I need to meet Lobke Marsden.
