Bring diverse or disparate entities into unity.
“We are each other’s harvest; we are each other’s business;
we are each other’s magnitude and bond.”
― Gwendolyn Brooks
If a group of ethnically diverse musicians
is not in sync, sounds assault the ears.
If you fill a plate with only sliced
chicken, and mashed potatoes,
there is no diversity of color, dulls
If every wall and accent piece
in a room is beige–a stage
for sleep–what catches the eye?
Without variety in music, food, art,
and people, our knowledge of cultures
would shrink. We would be poorer for it.
Variety is the spice of life and by thinking differently the human race (in all shades) has thought, discovered and and achieved things which we are all grateful for today. We are brilliant except when it comes to living with each other because of perceived differences that seem unacceptable!
It is a very sad world.
Agreed. Variety engages our souls.
