|Look at this carving from a distance. Imagine it as two people. The left side is the female- tall, graceful, slim, head held high, looking at the stars. The right side is the male-shorter, more solid, head turned slightly down, pondering life. They are not facing each other, but their forms cross over each other. Compromise. The dictionary defines compromise as "meeting halfway, coming to terms by giving up part of a claim."|
Men are from Mars and women are from Venus. It is a miracle that they can live together. Sometimes we are like different species. Without compromise we survive only poorly.
Though this carving may seem a bit 'tongue in cheek' it is really quite serious. If the world had more compromise it would be a better place.
