The corona confinement has curtailed in store shopping completely in some cases or at the very least made inconvenient by long line ups. We are resorting more and more to online shopping which means shipping! (unless you are doing curb side pickup from a local business)
Here's a quote by Robin Chase: "Transportation is the center of the world! It is the glue of our daily lives. When it goes well, we don't see it. When it goes wrong, it negatively colors our day, makes us feel angry and impotent , curtails our possibilities."
Another saying also uses glue as an analogy. " Love is the glue that holds the world together. Starhawk It's hard to believe when we don't see a lot of love going around. But even selfish people can hold together around the love of food, shelter, and clothing...and a whole lot of other things. We'd have to define the love.
I love this one. "History is scraps of evidence joined by the glue of imagination." Subhash Kak I was once accused of lying after sharing a personal experience. So I said, "I'm not lying. I'm just embellishing the truth." As a writer and artist you learn to make things as interesting and as colorful as possible. My sanctified imagination gets me into trouble when the people with whom I had the same experience don't see it that way and would never use the descriptions I do. Hmmm..... It's MY glue. My memory glue.
Glue is so important and we learn to use it when we are little, mostly for simple paper projects. It's very important to have the right glue for different materials and projects. I've experienced having fingers glued together with a tiny drop of "crazy" glue and using solvent with a Q-tip to loosen it. I've also had items patched with glue several times because the first attempts weren't holding.
In jewelry making there are glues designed to hold stones in place and it's hard to believe they will really last. On our honeymoon in Hawaii you could purchase an oyster for $5 and keep the pearl inside. It was anyone's guess the size, shape, or color, but a pearl was guaranteed. I got a beautiful steel gray, very rare colored pearl, which the vendor offered to set into a ring. A hole was drilled, glue added, and it was set onto a little pin on the top of the ring. It never fell off, but without trust in the blue, I finally took it to a jewelry who added claws for extra support.
There's a wonderful proverb that says, "A man that has friends must show himself friendly: and there is a friend that sticks closer than a brother." Proverbs 18:24 We can be the glue for each other during this time of the corona confinement.
