Michael Martine wrote a thought provoking post on social media and how it helps bloggers to grow their blogs. His post lead me back to a site I visited many moons ago and I’m thankful it did, since I found this very powerful quote on the Cluetrain Manifesto.
…People of Earth
The sky is open to the stars. Clouds roll over us night and day. Oceans rise and fall. Whatever you may have heard, this is our world, our place to be. Whatever you’ve been told, our flags fly free. Our heart goes on forever. People of Earth, remember.
This very quote has struck a powerful chord within me, since it is the people of earth that accompany me throughout my journey on this planet. While I work from home, all by myself, I’m never really alone, thanks to the people of earth.
Online whispers and murmurs all everywhere we listen. Just stop over at your favourite blog and see what type of whispers take place there. Brett wrote about the forever people, which is a very lovely homage to his childhood hometown and the people who once were.
Tei has whispered about her house in the middle of the street and Friar posted his never to do list. These are people of the earth who bring sunshine into my heart by making me smile, knowing that I’m not alone.
These people too are people of the earth. Even though they are all scattered across the globe I couldn’t feel more close to them if I was in the same room. Why? Because these people whisper in my language. They whisper ideas, thoughts, inspiration and stories that touch me on some primeval level.
Remember, we are all people of earth and with blogging we come together on the same platform, singing the same songs and dancing the same dances our ancestors have done, only on a different level.
