it’s important what connects us, not makes us different

it’s been over a week since my website is on. you have no idea how happy i am… and how grateful that i know how to use it and update it with fresh news! awesomeness! małgosia, ola, piotrek, thank you! nowicka&co rulezzz! but it is not the topic of my new blog post… i am happy i have a blog as my friend was giving me this idea earlier (yes, talking about you szymon), so this time i’ll write about something which came out together with my website… video to my first single you and i.

the idea for the video actually came to me like a shooting pain, completely unexpected. i didn’t realize that the story i was writing to ‘you and i’ isn’t only about random love, it is a song about all of us.

i met once and old guy sitting at the bus stop. he was waiting for his wife coming back from the hospital. he looked at me, smiled and started the conversation. people talk to each other just like that here in london, they just share their thoughts, sometimes tell their stories. he told me the story of his love and relationship, how he met his wife and why he was not picking her up from the hospital… (their doggie is literally eating all the furniture at home as long as he leaves him alone longer than 20 min. and recently i had my dog nacho in front of my eyes, once he decided to enjoy destroying the couch in the living room as a valentine’s present… he is such a sweetheart, not). ok, lets go back to the love story of this sweet old man. he told me they’ve been together with his wife for 50 years. and i started thinking, is there any relationship in this tough XXI century, which will achieve such a lot lasting love… cause it’s so easy to say „sorry, it’s not working anymore”. i realized how easily people give up in those days. they are afraid to fight… or too lazy? they say pretty often „we’re too different”.

another time, my facebook friend told me he lost his best friends over a fight… about some shitty little thing. 6 years of their friendship was gone, just with one shitty little thing… cause of „too much differences”…

how about families, who cut their family members off, cause they are gay or got pregnant with someone „not belonging to their religion or ethnicity”… „what would neighbours say”, „we wouldn’t be let in to the church”, „how could i look into your grandma’s eyes?” they would say.

too often we exclude and reject each other. try to rule people and separate them into groups and subgroups. we say „i am different than you, her, him”. and we are different in some points. but if you „undress” somebody from the skin or their views, we’ll be the same… bones, internal organs, muscles… all the same!

we easily forget about what makes us the same or what connects us. religion, views, ethnicities, sexualities, bla bla bla… who cares?! lets find something what connects us. and stop looking through „what makes us different”. don’t give up, just because it will be easier…

it gave me the inspiration to make a video to my song. i called my friend kasper and said „kaps, we’re making a music video”… and that’s how it look like. it’s more about what connects us then what makes us different…
