  1. Hello Amy,

    great and different article. I agree with you, totally.People want to change us, to impose their opinions on us. But we are different, we are unique, and we can’t like the same things, the same music, the same movies.I don’t like when someone telling me that is ok or not. I don’t like in most cases music with too much views on YouTube, or bestseller books,because there can not be such a consensus of thought in one place 🙂 Thank you

    1. Ben, if we who are dare to be different don’t at least try to begin to bring down the walls of isolation who will? Yet, we deserve respect and healthy boundaries and if others are not willing to accept those premises, then sorry, but I’m trying someone else. I’ve just recently reached out to a neighbor and because of what I did, she who loves to bake, has been bringing hubby and I bake goods. LOL One simple decision and the wall is beginning to come down. NICE!!! Have a great day today! 🍁

    1. Thank you, Dan. I so do agree with you. My hope is that people will finally realize these huge extreme polarizing groups are not healthy and so take action to get to know those who are different from them. One can hope! ❤

  2. Amazingly forest photos, Amy 😀
    We can’t demand others to be open-minded, but by being this ourselves, we can show them another view at life. If they are ready, they will start thinking…..
    We need to respect each other, just as we are and not as we could wish others to be.
    Much love to you ❤

  3. There is so much division in our world today, people have definitely drawn lines . We need to keep an open mind but never undermine our principles to please others . Great article and amazing photographs Amy. ❤

    1. Thank you, Holly! Your comment meant a lot to me because you are such a good writer yourself. And thank you for having the courage to leave a comment on this post. I myself am really attempting to bring down walls that are around me yet if people do not respect me for who I am or will not accept me for who I am, they have no place in my life. It is a two-way street. Much Love to you this day, dear friend. 💕🌹💕

  4. “for different I am”…it does smack a bit of Dr. Seuss, and how wonderful is that comparison ?? I’m sure he was told he was different, as were most of us here, I’m thinking. We do need to come to terms with the divide among us, the isolation, and the willing “stepping in tune” with the loudest voices. But first, we have to know self, be strong in our conviction. That’s where it has to start. Great piece, Amy.

    1. Oh, Van, what a wonderful comment and I thank you! As with anything in life especially with this subject matter, it first begins with us. If we do not have a strong sense of who we are we will be swayed this way and that way, pulled this way and that way, and we will be even more confused than ever. Perhaps, and you just made me think of this with your words, all this division that is going on today has a purpose and that purpose being, we as individuals are finding out exactly who we are. Now that is a very cool thought! Huh. And when we are ready being strong in our foundation knowing who we are, that will be the time when we begin to reach out to different. Wow this is powerful! You just gave me the Goosebumps! Much Love to you this day, dear friend. 💕🌹💕

      1. Lump in throat… Bless you, Diane, for saying that about my photography. I am so passionate about what I do and I have truly worked so hard at improving myself and my technique. May you have a very very special day today! 💕🍁💕

  5. I think accepting difference (in every possible appearance like skin color, attitude, habits, cultures,…) is the core lesson for men to learn in order to break the spell of war and violence! Great post, Amy and I love how loving you write about yourself and about the lessons which take us to more love for ourselves!
    Fantastic photos too! The colors are breathtaking!

    1. Oh, Erika, thank you for this beautiful comment. I’m not sure what is happening to me but ever since my mother passed, these incredibly powerful words are bubbling up shouting to be written. It is almost as if my hands become a vehicle for a message that clearly requests adamantly to be known. Before we can reach out to different others, we must be extremely strong in knowing ourselves in order not to be confused or swayed by others. I really humbly thank you for the compliment that you paid me regarding my photography and I also humbly thank you for encouraging me to keep on writing about my own life lessons. That is something that is not easy for me to do. But again my Heart does insist that I do it. Much Love to you this day. 💕🌹💕

      1. I hear you well, Amy! It is not easy to write about and still, it helps us to express what wants to reach the surface. Yes, how can we understand others as long as we don’t even understand ourselves and if we are not respectful and loving with ourselves we will have difficulties to tolerate other people’s personalities. Don’t stop writing, Amy… for yourself and for us 💖

  6. A beautiful essay about differences among us and accepting them. It is the way we can survive as a whole not just from a single minded. Just as your beautiful words, your pictures are as beautiful!

  7. Hi Amy 🙂 Those are magnificently beautiful photos!! Wow! I am creating a magic forest walk in my imagination from your forest photos. ❤ I can tell it is going to be a favorite walk to return to! 🙂 ❤ I take imaginary journeys sometimes in the in between times when I am doing dishes or other such fascinating tasks. 🙂 I have been on some really interesting imaginary walks that way. Sometimes, I go back in time and visit places I have actually been. I am beyond sleepy this evening. I got up early and was outside most of the day. It is a good lots of fresh air sleepy. 🙂 It has been raining and stormy here a lot lately and I decided I needed to fill up with fresh air today. I will be walking in your magic forest as I drift off to sleep shortly. Thank you! ❤ Love and blessings and wishes for a good night's sleep! ❤ ❤ ❤
