It’s been too long. Returning is like a warm hug when you’ve been lost in the cold.

I’ve been thinking about originality. It seems to be a goal to strive for in our society. Is it what gives you an edge over everyone else?
I believe that we are all original. No two of us are alike; therefore, we are each an original. We can copy, but that’s hard to do perfectly, believe me I know! Have you ever tried with every ounce of skill you have to replicate a photo, a painting, a sculpture, etc? So, we can be an “original copy” too.
Twins, I hear you say? Identical twins aren’t original because two people are born exactly the same. Well, I beg to differ. I am a twin, but that’s besides the point. The environment changes us from the moment we exist. The moment that one embryo completely replicates and becomes two, we will inevitably change; diverging as a consequence of our surroundings and this applies in utero as well. Having dabbled in DNA and RNA research work a millennium ago, the replication process isn’t 100% perfect either. Things can go off kilter, even a small error can produce very different results.
We are all original. So do your thing and love it; Make it your own!! Live your life knowing that you are a true original and that no one can replicate you, perfectly. Besides, take it as a complement because to copy is the best form of flattery!
