Who is in your trust circle? Have they earned that place in the center of your life? What about you? Are you worthy of taking that central and honored place in another person's circle? How trustworthy are the connections we make in an era when we count as "friends" people we've never actually met?
Christopher Allen has written an article dealing with the topographical map of human interaction. In this article he uses terms that eco-feminists and those in earthwise traditions will recognize: Support Circle, Sympathy Circle, Trust Circle, Emotional Circle and one that may be new: the Familiar Stranger. If you are:
* Pondering the ways in which your life overlaps, intersects and connects with the lives of the people around you, or
* You are choosing who to work with on a project, ritual or event or
* You wondering who you can count on in a crisis,
you might find this useful.
