Throwback to that time @ made me be a mermaid in the middle of winter 😂love u miss u @ (@)
Ralph Waldo Emerson says, "To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else, is the greatest accomplishment."
In an effort to discuss the concept of 'otherness', I implore you to witness this mermaid. Is a mermaid not an other? She is different than us. She comes from a place that is unlike our own. She may believe in things that we don't understand. And yet I dare to say this mermaid does not inflict feelings of fear or mistrust. Our world is in a fragile state of fear and separateness and I can't help but feel like life would be better if people were able to realise that we are all in this together - white, black, Hispanic, First Nation, old world, new world, Muslim, LGBT, thin, curvy, female, male, hippie, conservative, believers and non believers....yes, even mermaids. We are all born from the belly of the Earth. And what's more- what is left in the absence of fear is love.... @ @
