See the Bones of Light

Recently I read a post on Facebook that showed a picture of a series of skeletons that all looked exactly alike, with captions under each identifying them as "white, black, brown, yellow, gay, straight, liberal, conservative, old young" etc. This idea made an impression on me. I am always striving for ways to illustrate the oneness of us all, and seeing all humans as having bones, which we all do, as one way to bypass the outer dream state stuff that seems to define us. We are hardwired to instantly assess and judge everything and everyone we see, and put words to it. It is an atavistic "skill" that has enabled us to be aware of danger, to pick an appropriate mate, to align with one's trib
