TOGETHER is about the life that we gain from one another when we are connected in community. Many scientific studies have shown that plants show much more bountiful progress of growth when they are in the prescence of other plants. Likewise, we as humans are able to grow and progress at much higher rates when we are doing so alongside those who love and support us. In this piece, four heart vessels are thriving, together yet separate, calling to attention human intimacy which COVID-19 made so sacred to us all.
