This amazing photo By Linda H. (earlofoxford) made me think of the symbolism of silhouttes. We should always simply be who we are. No frills. No stuff. I love the concept.

Interesting really. Aren’t we actually all the same? When we take away all the detail. You know, the detail of what we wear, the place we come from, the colour of our hair, eyes or skin. We are woman. Strong woman. With a common bond. The love of art. Sharing. Memories. Many are mothers & grannies. Many are wives. Sisters. Daughters. But we can’t see this in this silhoutte. When we take all of that away we are the same. We are a shape. We are still different but the same. What I see is a few ladies, sharing a sunset with no agenda. Just sharing a special moment in time cos we could. Knowing we share so much, but are all so very different. It’s what makes us who we are. People.

People are people because of other people. Umuntu Ngumuntu Ngabantu (a zulu proverb)
