Seven Ages

'All the world's a stage,
And all the men and women merely players.
They have their exits and their entrances,
And one man in his time plays many parts,
His acts being seven ages.'
-William Shakespeare, As You Like It

If there is one thing blogging has taught me, it is this, that we tend to stereotype way too much. The many people I have come across in all walks and stages of life are extremely varied. Blogging is a tool that can bring the generations together, maybe even cultures, because we do not see the outside package, we are more willing to listen to the heart of each individual, or at least I am.

When we are in a group setting, such as a mall or bus or whatever, we tend to look around at others and think that they have nothing to say to us . What does the older woman have to say to the young man, what could she say that he could possibly find of interest. What does he have to offer her. We would not even start a conversation, but on a blog we can share heart to heart.

That is why it is so meaningful if we share on each others blogs. I certainly value comments from people visiting.
