Social fragmentation is the core challenge of our day. We long to be together, but we are apart. We are isolated by distrust, polarization, trauma and incivility. We live in a hyper-individualistic culture that pays lip service to community but which actually values success above relationship, ego above care, the market above society and tribal divisions over common humanity.

Does this bring you joy? I bet the majority of you have heard this phrase before. It is the heart of “KonMari,” Marie Kondo’s tidying and organizing method. I became intrigued by Marie Kondo when my daughter was a toddler. She teaches a super-efficient, space saving technique of folding clothes where you can still see each piece of clothing at the same time. Boy was I excited by the prospect of having tidy toddler dresser drawers. If you’ve spent much time around toddlers, you know that dream vanished quickly. However, one concept I did incorporate into my life is asking myself the question “does this bring me joy?” and then acting accordingly based on the answer.

En español | Can she sing? Marlene Barrow and Jackie Hicks sounded downright skeptical. It was the summer of 1961, and the young women — then 19 and 21 years old, respectively — were at the Motown recording studio on West Grand Boulevard in Detroit. Barrow, tall and slender, and Hicks, bubbly and full-figured, had grown up singing in the choir of the Hartford Avenue Baptist Church.
