More alike than different

Watching the moon rise over North Beach in Durban

Have you ever laughed so hard that you had a stitch in your side, fallen hyperventilating, to your left or right?

Did you ever talk to a cat or dog and see them ‘smize’ right back at you?

Ever felt so thirsty, that when at last you put a glass of water to your parched lips, you felt one cell after the other leap to hydrated attentiveness as the trickle of life giving liquid brought you back to life?

Has your heart ever done cartwheels, tripping out at the sight of a loved one, a good memory or just the thought of having a good book to read when you get home later in the evening?

Did you ever watch the moon rise with a friend and feel that the world was your oyster
Yours for the taking…

Did your heart ever sink when you heard bad news?

Or leap in full throttle when you saw a familiar face?

High’s, lows, and meanders, obstacles, the good, the bad and the ugly…

We are all more alike than we are different

Isn’t it about time we treat each other with a little more care?
