Being in a new place has you more alert to the nuances that you would otherwise miss due to habit. It is almost as if you get a new pair of eyes to look at the good ol' world. And it has been great.
On the surface I saw differences. It was easier to spot the differences. Isn't that what we are trained to do? Spot the difference. Grade the attributes. And assign values to them.
Beyond all the barriers, the great divides, the differences, the gaps,
Beneath the surfaces, the appearances,
There is a bridge
There is the depth
On the other side
In the deep
There is a person
Just like me
