This I Believe: Human Connection

Providence, RI – The phrase sounds so plain and simple. Yet all of us know how complex and challenging our human - and our sometimes inhumane - connections can be. Barbara Schweitzer reflects on the profound, and complicated, meaning of connections in our lives.

Schweitzer is the author of 33 and 1/3. She has twice been awarded the Merit Fellowship for Poetry in RI. Schweitzer is co-founder of Rhode Island's Origami Poems Project, a free poetry venture that engages poets from New York to Jakarta, Indonesia. She maintains a private practice in psychotherapy in Providence.
