In a recent conversation with a young family I realized that this lifestyle of the clump does appeal deeply to the heart. This young mom and dad were discussing the only reason they watch a certain television show. It's not their favorite show but there is always in each episode a scene with the entire family gathered around the dining room table eating together. That's why they watch the show. So the clump whether it's around the dining room table, on the couch or in the car is a much desired way of life. I know at times I think too simply but couldn't this cure so many ills? Can't really fight or argue when you're in a clump, you just have to get along. Maybe we could start a movement, we need a motto, a mascot, a theme song. Or, just clump. Invite others who don't have this in their life to join yours. You'll only have to invite once.
This clump thing certainly isn't new or unexplored. I believe the clump is what author Robert Fulgram was referring to when he wrote, "When you go out into the world, watch out for traffic, hold hands and stick together." Maybe this order be it a "dis" or an "in" could become more the norm if we could just realize the simplicity of a pile of people and yet the importance of....what more is there?
