The tools are immaterial, the resulting piece is what's most important.

In writing this entry, I found myself reflecting on the word, differences.It is a pretty simple word, everyone knows what it means, but do we really think about, or reflect upon the word?

Without differences the world would be a pretty dull place. Imagine if you will, everyone looking the same, acting the same, never expressing a unique thought or idea. There would be no need for words such as debate, or choice. Everyone would live in the same kind of house, buy the same kind of car, eat the same kind of food. Differences is what makes the world go round.

Differences are what keep us interesting and interested. Changing our haircolor, our cars, and our lifestyles once in a while can revive a stagnant existence.

Finding out that people can be different in many ways, should not detract from the basic fact that people are very similar too. Every parent wants the best for their children, everyone needs to have food and water to survive, and everyone deserves respect. Fathers want to support their families, mothers want to take care of their families, regardless of their race, religion, or other differences. Everyone has feelings, emotions, and their own thoughts and feelings. In reality, everyone is different, and everyone is the same.

Even joss sticks comes in different sizes

Life should be viewed as a gift, a short period of time that we have on Earth. We should revel in life's differences, embrace variety as the spice of life, but never forget that although we may be different in many ways, we are all very much alike.
