humanity, self-expression & the mix that is us

humanity

“Humanity” – such a huge theme, and a thought-provoking photo challenge. challenge. It’s great to browse the diverse and colorful collected Humanity photo stream. and it wasn’t easy to pick an own photo. i picked a museum moment, with its different layers of art / self-expression, medium / message, architecture / emotion – all the spaces and works we create for ourselves and for the community.

And incidentically in perfect timing, I came across this Humanity quote in the book I am reading:

“We see how beautiful and amazing things are and we see how caught up we are. It isn’t that one is the bad part and one is the good part, but that it’s a kind of interesing, smelly, rich, fertile mess of stuff. When it’s all mixed up together, it’s us: humanness.”
– Pema Chodron, The Wisdom of no Escape
