There are and have been and will be an infinite number of things on earth. Individuals all different, all wanting different things, all knowing different things, all loving different things, all looking different. Every thing that has been on earth has been different from any other things. That is what I love: the differentness, the uniqueness of all things and the importante of life… I see something that seems wonderful; I see the divineness in ordinary things.
