Annoying Simplicity

Don't Bother Me Kid
Don't Bother Me Kid

Okay, my wife says I march to the beat of a different drummer. And after 50 years, I’m finally okay with that. It’s who I am – who I want to be.

Are ya with me?  Are you cool with who you are? With the way people judge perceive you?

No, really, are you?  Most people are, right? Because most people are pretty “normal” (whatever that means).

But if you’ve ever felt sort of out on the edge, the fringe so to speak, it’s a fairly lonely place to be. And it takes guts to be out there.

Had to tell you all of that to tell you this: “You didn’t give enough consideration to yesterday’s challenge to have a convincing answer today.”

How do I know? Because I live on the fringes, an outsider. Outsiders know. Wish it was explainable.

So, may I ask you, again, to take yesterday’s challenge more seriously today?

You know what, don’t even worry about. It’s far too much to ask of an adult, in mid life, to have an immediate, and convincing answer to the most basic of childhood questions.

Just tell those precious young minds to run along, and not to bother you.

It must be in the jeans, cause I was thinking the same thing about myself….marching to a different beat……but that is ok cause I like it that way.

Amen sister. Amen.

Glad you’re ok with it.

I’m still working on accepting it for myself. What’s different now is that the pace of acceptance is faster than it’s ever been.

This isn’t too difficult, because generally, when I’m not running 400 meters, I’m pretty slow. :
