Deep-Thought Thursday

From a Human Rights perspective, I get it. I'm all for equal rights and the fair treatment of every individual. 

But if you think of it from a different perspective, I don't think we are all created equal, and that's a remarkable thing. There is no one on earth who is exactly as you are and that is mind-blowingly fantastic. If everyone was the same, how boring would that be?

If everyone was created equal there would be no Picasso's or Gandhi's or F. Scott Fitzgerald's in the world. I find that so sad. There is beauty all around us and there are only a fortunate few who have the ability to take what they see, experience or feel and translate it into something relatable, tangible and breathtaking. If we were all created equal there would be no uniqueness, no fascination with the odd or understated, and no passion. The world would be a mundane place if we were all exactly the same. 

So thank you to the artists. The photographers, designers, painters, writers, poets and musicians for making our world beautiful.
