shared sorrow decreases, shared joy increases

I remember reading Spider Robinson‘s Callahan’s Crosstime Saloon many years ago. It’s a delightful book, but one maxim contained therein has stuck with me: “Shared sorrow decreases. Shared joy increases. Thus do we refute Entropy.”

To this day, this maxim remains the foundation of my conception of community.

Last night, this maxim was reinforced yet again in my experience. Just sayin’.
