I read the Tipping Point by Malcolm Gladwell a couple of years ago.   To quote  Wikipedia he wrote “Connectors are the people who link us up with the world…….people with a special gift for bringing the world together.”

The picture above is of a bunch of connectors I have collected over the years.  Most of them I have found while walking with Tootsie.  Some of them I came across while I was moving back from Brasil.  There was one I didn’t pick up, but I will always remember…… was a rusty, dirty, salt-stained gator clip.  I noticed it because of what it was, but didn’t want to stop and touch it, much less put it into my pocket.   All of these years later, I still think of that clip because it made me think of what kind of a connection it would make.  What kind of a connection I would make.  What kind of connection I have with other people.

Charles Eames Quote

While at the Henry Ford Museum with my son and his 4th grade class today.  I came across this quote from Charles Eames, of the Eames chair fame, which reads

“Eventually everything connects- people, ideas, objects.  The quality of the connections is the key to quality per se.”


What kind of a connection are you making?  What kind of connectors are you looking for?

I’d love to hear what you think!

Have a great week!
