Currie's Gratitude 16 December 2013

I think I fall into a lot of cracks in terms of I'm too something. I'm too this, I'm too that. And my music has never really had a home. I've been this floating alternative. I'm too mainstream for alternative. I'm too alternative for mainstream. And I'm just kind of wandering.  [K. D. Lang]

It’s an odd thing I think how we tend to want to fit into some sort of a defined space; or mayBE it is that we want others to know where to place us in the grander scheme of things. Whole histories and possibilities are lost in this practise. NOT everything fits somewhere.

Some things are just wandering about and it is okay to wonder without having anything verified or certain.

Trees go wandering forth in all directions with every wind, going and coming like ourselves, traveling with us around the sun two million miles a day, and through space heaven knows how fast and far! [John Muir]

I am often forgetting that other people are likely as confused as I am about so much. I find myself assuming things and assigning meanings to things that might NEVER BE anywhere close to the truth. And then I operate as though my meandering mind wandering is WHAT IS SO.

Though really, Life is quite serendipitous…

I love you, Currie

I agree that not everything has to fit somewhere. I wonder am I doing art or really doesn't matter as long as I'm creative. Very nice collage!

If you live outside of the box you have so much more freedom!! Freedom to find out who you are without restraint or expectations. My motto was give them something to talk about--LOL! You will never please everybody--so who cares what people think. The only people I do care what they think are people I dearly love and respect...and even then, if they truly love me they will accept I have to walk my own path, you know? Life is hard enough without making it even harder with a lot of arbitrary rules about who you should be or what you should think or do, you know? I don't trust mob mentality to guide my footsteps. ;)
