<b>same same but different</b>

<i>It doesn’t matter if we are in China, in the USA, somewhere in the arabic world, in Austria, Africa, Australia,….. We will ever know: in this red tin is Cola. We don’t care about the language how it is written or how the surface of the tin is decorated.
It is simply cola, nothing more. We don’t care what the surface of the tin looks like.

Now the question: What is with us humans? The same red blood flows thru our veins. The same bones are under the skin. But we do care. We care where we come from, what we look like, how we speak. We don’t see the others as humans. We see Austrians, Chinese, American, black, white, yellow,… people. I hope this will stop someday. It would be a better world.
We are all the same, but a little bit different. And this is a good fact.

To the title: in the spring 2008 I was in Thailand. When you deal on a market and compare prices, the merchants say: it’s same same, but different.</i>

    great idea and still life ~ and your pov in your words is one I agree with ~ was discussing the other day ~ what is the distinction is one to one vs one to many ~ when you go from you and I to group ~ that is where the disconnect comes in and all the indifference…I’m moving in the one to “same same” not different realm ;) xx

  • Thanks for these great words. I have to add: no difference isn’t good too. The difference makes it what we are. Exclusion because of these differences is the terrible situation today.
    And many thanks for the fave too. I really appreciate it.

    I agree Manuel ~ it is in the connection the difference can be appreciated and celebrated ~ not to be discounted, feared or excluding xx
