Working Together: A Poem
Working Together We shape our self to fit this world and by the world are shaped again. The visible and the invisible working together in common cause, to produce the miraculous. I am thinking of the way the intangible air passed at speed round a shaped wing easily holds our weight. So may we, in this life trust to those elements we have yet to see or imagine, and look for the true shape of our own self, by forming it well to the great intangibles about us. — David Whyte from The House of Belonging ©1996 Many Rivers Press Written for the presentation of The Collier Trophy to The Boeing Company marking the introduction of the new 777 passenger jet.
