Rivers running together

There can come a point while I am working on a project when I realize it connects to some other project I am also working on.

Recently I’ve noticed this happening a lot. All of the various rivulets seem to be coalescing into larger streams, which in turn are starting to merge into a single coherently flowing entity.

I wonder whether all of our projects in life are actually just facets of one big project. Like the sides of a sculpture, or the movements of a symphony, perhaps all of one’s efforts cannot help but form a single large life’s work.

We may not be aware of this while it is happening. In fact, it may be years before we see how all the pieces fit together. But even if that is so, isn’t it worth the wait?

  1. Perhaps. Or maybe the apparent coincidences of the material world underly a lattice of causality. 😉
