Sonder (n.)

The profound realization that every person is living a life as vivid as your own.

A life that is populated with their own ambitions, friends, routines, and inherited craziness. Each individual an epic tale that continues around you like a sprawling anthill deep underground, its elaborate passageways connecting to thousands of other lives you never knew existed. Lives in which you might only appear once, as an extra sipping coffee in the background, a blur of traffic passing on the highway, or a silhouette in a lighted window at dusk.

A reminder that we are all together. One love.
