REPLICAS | Naka-Meguro Ward, Tokyo // We are all the same, in so many ways. In these last few weeks of travel, of so many countries in so many days against a backdrop of an uncertain America, I’m always struck by the phenomenon of human laughter. Everywhere you go, we all laugh the same. That same sound, the way a face lights up, the crinkling of the eyes, that simple, universal trait - the sound of a laugh. It’s not something we’re taught or given or pickup from TV, it’s just something we all do the same. And that sameness is so important, now especially of all times. The more you see of the world, the easier it is to see how we’re all the same. Certainly, we have different belief systems, perspectives, and we look and sound a little different, some of us even act in ways that are different than the way we were taught that we should act…but we’re all just humans. Replicas from some original model long ago, just trying to make itself better. #NightThoughts #WithLoveFromTokyo (at Midori-So 2)
