Bela Taraseiskey, Sharing Jerusalem, ©2008, acrylic on canvas, 30 x 24 inches
Seeing an image of the planet Earth taken from space inspires awe in many of us. It allows us to clearly see the connectedness of life on our planet. We have created imaginary boundaries, sectioning ourselves into countries and states, forgetting that in reality we are all living together, breathing the same air, drinking from the same water, eating food grown from the same earth.
We share everything on this planet, whether we are conscious of it or not, with other people, and those people are our brothers and sisters. We are all interconnected and interdependent. We share our living space on "mother" earth.
