A Crooked Doorway


Well I've been trying to decide all day what to write. And still haven't come up with anything really. Someone told me I had to think of witty things to say - I'm just not feeling all that witty. I was thinking of putting up wonderments but then a friend of mine always finds the answer for - which takes away the the wonderment :) I know that what I have written so far has focused a little more on one particular topic. So here is what I was thinking for this one...

I had someone tell me a little while ago that I find the absurd things in life, have a sort of skewed perception, sort of see things through a slightly crooked doorway. I was thinking about that today…here is what someone else sent me when I told them this story (three guesses who:) – The Apple Manifesto…

Here's to the crazy ones.
The misfits.
The rebels.
The troublemakers.
The round pegs in the square holes.
The ones who see things differently.
They're not fond of rules
And they have no respect for the status quo.
You can praise them, disagree with them, quote them, disbelieve them, glorify or vilify them.
About the only thing you can't do is ignore them.
Because they change things.
They invent. They imagine. They heal.
They explore. They create. They inspire.
They push the human race forward.
Maybe they have to be crazy.
How else can you stare at an empty canvas and see a work of art?
Or sit in silence and hear a song that never been written?
Or gaze at a red planet and see a laboratory on wheels?
We make tools for these kinds of people.
While some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius.
Because the ones who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones that do.

I like this. I like this a lot.

Crooked doorways can be fun:) I have always admired your perspective...you always manage to ask the questions that no one else thinks to...and for this I am greatful!
