While walking along my peaceful rural road I noticed a large grey mass of clouds overhead. Surrounding it were pockets of blue sky, some areas of pink and some of billowing white. It was beautiful. And it struck me that if there weren't differences with their contrasting colour and texture they might not be so stunning.
And so it is with people. Our differences create the intriguing background of our lives. Just as the houses lining the streets of St. John's, Newfoundland or Tobermory, Scotland are delightful to view because they are painted different colours, so are we more interesting because we are, for the most part, different.
I love this lesson from the universe. Hang out with people who are different to see the beauty you create when you are in community.
