Hey. Remember that last rambling train wreck of a post [you think you can make fun of me better than me? huh? BRING IT!]? There was a comment made on it by Terry of this Yahoo Group that was just so super-cool and lucid, I felt compelled to share it with the world. So here it is [this was put up without permission, so…if there’s a problem, someone let me know]:
I would put it like this.
Anybody and Everybody can get from point A to point B.
Say you want to get from Miami to Atlanta. Anybody and Everybody can get from Miami to Atlanta. Maybe some go by plane, some by train, some by automobile. MAYBE some walk. But Anybody and Everybody can make it to Atlanta.
Problem is most people leave Miami for Atlanta and lose track of where they are going. Next thing they know they are back in Miami. And they will venture out again and stop moving in the direction of Atlanta and WHAM they are back in Miami.
They will do that over and over and over and come to conclude that only The Great ever make it to Atlanta.
“Atlanta is some magical place that only excepts the special few.”
And all they had to do is keep moving in the direction of Atlanta until they got there.
Problem is most people leave Miami for Atlanta and lose track of where they are going…all they had to do is keep moving in the direction of Atlanta until they got there.
I did not put it better myself…
