This is very beautiful, and humbling. Thank you.

Very teeny tiny print, but a beautiful, sad, and poignant message.

Boxes are good for storing books, not people.

Just a question: r.b. = Rose
Yes? No?

r.b. said...

Yes, my name is Rose. Simple woman, simple name!

I can literally see people being shoved in boxes for their souls. Mostly it's done for convienience...so they can be tidied up and forgotten about, you know? Put away, for the good of the community much like children used to be put away for the good of the family.

Acceptance of diversity seems key. When I have been bothered to get to know someone who is "boxed up", you can see the unbelievable courage and strength it entails just to be alive.

I clicked on the picture and used the zoom. My eyes are like 40/30 with corrective lens.

I agree diversity is the key. I try to open up the boxes for those I can, but it works only on a small scale and we need big change.
