A change in mindset. You are sitting in a subway car and across from you, also sitting, is a motley string of people facing you — the old, the young, the astute, the lost, the excited, the indifferent, etc. But see each person first and foremost as an individual and then, way down the list, if at all, as a member of a particular race.

I am a voracious reader and also enjoy writing. I often have a very different point of view than the popular one. I do see value in debate, and thought it might add to the public debate on controversial issues if I were to express my contrarian opinions. I also started keeping my poems recently (I've written little pieces my whole adult life but never kept any); and I've been a photographer now for over 25 years. So I will be adding an occasional poem and hopefully interesting photograph to the blog along the way, just to spice things up. View all posts by Henry Barnard
