One day a beautiful blue ball of yarn rolls naturally into the galaxy… and so, the journey of life begins. The yarn symbolizes the heartbeat that connects us all. It swiftly travels through time on Earth and draws our deep interconnectedness with everything. The yarn unravels and endlessly shape-shifts into flowers and trees and animals and… into humans as well. Following the line of life, we reach a tipping point, the recent pandemic. A shared chapter of sadness, desolation and separation but also an unexpected chance for human-heartfelt contemplation. With a new awareness, the humans realize that the only way forward is together. Inspired by unity, they take one big harmonious breath to flip the page into history. And that my dear, was the beginning of Earth Family.
