An ampersand’s purpose is to connect. Our lives are filled with connections. Connections to people, connections to places, connections to memories, and so far beyond the surface. Ampersands are beautiful symbols that have the universal ability to show the relationship between two things. Or three, or four, or five. My life is full of ampersands. Not periods, because growth continues. Not commas, because there’s no time for breaks. Not semi-colons, because they are too specific, too separate. An ampersand, and my life, continues on. Welcome. Always, Ampersand.
