Marriages that lack trust hit a dead end. Handshakes that seal a business deal assume genuine trust, which sometimes springs from a leap of faith. As Ralph Waldo Emerson said, “Trust your instinct to the end, though you can render no reason.” Bill Miles reflects on the most basic form of trust that connects human beings and other creatures.
