The greatest proof that we intrinsically need community is grief. Grief defies logic. We might live 1,000 kilometres from a loved one. Only talk to them once a month.

When they pass away, your life may hardly change at all. Yet grief can then descend and obliterate your life.

I know why some don’t get grief – you can’t, until it happens to you. It makes no logical sense.

We look and seem like autonomous, separate beings. Yet we are somehow connected through time and space, beyond simple biology.

How are the souls of loved ones living far apart so intertwined that the death of another is like cutting one’s own heart in two?

Proof of our need for one another, and the tangibility of love.

It’s not good for us to be alone.
