Last night I was lying in bed thinking….

This blanket I have over me, I have it thanks to 100s or 1000s of workers in some factory who made sure this was made, and thanks to some guy at the top who thought up of making a factory.. and thanks to the guys who sold it at a shop.. And before that, it is thanks to the farmers who grew the cotton to make this blanket..

A sudden feeling came over me, how everything around me has been touched by so many people without whom I’d have nothing. Not even a roof over my head. In my little room alone, it’s probably been touched by hundreds of thousands of people if not more. Makes you feel we are all a lot more inter-connected than we think.
