n. the realization that each random passerby is living a life as vivid and complex as your own—populated with their own ambitions, friends, routines, worries and inherited craziness—an epic story that continues invisibly around you like an anthill sprawling deep underground, with elaborate passageways to thousands of other lives that you’ll never know existed, in which you might appear only once, as an extra sipping coffee in the background, as a blur of traffic passing on the highway, as a lighted window at dusk.
Sonder is also the name of The Civic Arena band. We are out to change the world through music! We are after great music to listen to as you drive down the road in your car, as you clean house and at your work place. Our heart is to bring wholesome sounds that make you want to laugh, cry, and dream for a better church, society and ultimately a better America. Sonder is out to help remind us to stop, look around and realize the individual human can reach out to another individual human.
