Sketching in Brazil
There are a lot of things nowadays that makes me wonder about my membership into the human race.
But if there is something that ultimately makes me feel part of something bigger than all the pettiness and atrocities I see is music. Music is the ultimate uniter, the one thing that transcends language, ethnicity, race, religion, country borders...
It is when I hear a beautiful piece of music that I realize we are all one, connected by the same motivations: family, love, companionship, shelter, food and that the despicable actions we commit are propelled by the same emotion: fear.
I always wanted this blog to be devoid of anything that leads to emotions such as fear. I wanted my words to be like music, free from conceptions of race, religion, ethnicity, borders... so only the words are heard and all the other misconceptions and prejudices are removed from the equation.
What about you? What makes you feel one with the universe?
