I’ve had a few questions fielded to me about the name of my blog, and even a few squeamish reactions to the title. Clearly, this is not a blog about fibrous tissue, but I love the analogy. When people would say, “Gee, Mira, you’re such a networker,” I found myself saying, “Yah, I’m the connective tissue in the universe.”
As the name implies, connective tissue serves a “connecting” function in the body. It supports and binds other tissues. There are all types of connective tissues that serve various parts of the body, from organs to joints.
We have people in our lives that we’re connected to who serve to support the different parts of our lives. Family, friends, business, and community all come together to support how we move in the world. We can’t survive without connective tissue and we can’t survive without a network of help.
