I've been out of the country since December and out of touch with anything that is not right in front of me. Living without familiar distractions, it is easier to see that the only differences among us come from our perceptions. You can see it too, but first treat yourself to a little space. Turn down the volume on everything that comes your way. Drop most of what you think is so important to have, know or do. Let go of all that and watch as your view of the world changes. For one thing, that stranger over there is you, and you are him.
