The diversity and individuality
of life on earth just blows me away at times.
It can be seen all around us.
Nothing is the same. Everything is different.
Even tree bark,
something that is usually ignored or overlooked
displays a striking array of individuality.
It is the way our world is supposed to be.
And, yet, we humans seem to resist that which is different.
We make note of things that are too far outside our own opinion of normal.
We make fun of,
and sometimes make war on
things that are different or
beyond our understanding.
We fail to see the beauty of individuality!
It is not one of our best traits.
