j WHAT DO YOU GAIN FROM SEEING THROUGH OTHER PEOPLES EYES?

Being human is being not only the way  you are. There are endless ways to embrace human nature. Wether you like or dislike other ways, they exist, they are part of reality. Ignoring them doesn’t make us wiser, it makes us ignorants. I agree with the sign that John Lennon and Yoko Ono are holding:  “Don’t hate what you don’t understand.”

  2. Following your blog for a few weeks now, I am continually touched by your words and amazed by your work. Trying to comment on your post on Downs Syndrome, I want to thank you for once again addressing the intense beauty of the imperfect with your lovingkindness.

  3. Thanks for sharing this Elsa, you have connected for me several ideas that I have been trying to help my children understand about compassion, and your ideas, and illustrations make this perfect. What an amazing idea for a children’s book! The children’s book of Love, in the end it is about love and gentleness. Thanks for another inspiring moment! :-)

  4. Thank you so much for making visible what I have been talking to my kids about – the idea of gentleness and compassion, even in the face of things that we disagree with or dislike.
    Not an easy topic, but your illustration makes this so visible. I think it is a great idea for a kids book! Thanks again!!
