"The problem here is a totalitarian uniformity, a cult-like mentality such that even allies are enemies if they fail to follow the Exact Party Line. " - Phyllis Chesler

Do I Make You Proud?

Maybe this is hokey...or I'm just hormonal but this video reminds me of my own life. For so long I chased things I thought I was supposed to be chasing. To please who? Parents? Friends? The people I passed on the street? Trying to fit in.  Only since my mid-thirties I started to allow myself to just be me. It's a process. Some days I don't get there but mostly I do. I'm finally living my dreams. The work I do doesn't feel like work. Only joy.  I only wish I had more of it. Times are economically tough for most, myself included. Twitter, believe it or not helped me feel so much less isolated. Through that social medium I was able to find other like-minded folks, who are independent thinkers, do not "go with the flow" of mob rule...renegades or otherwise formerly called "trouble makers." There's a lot of us. The ruse is up!
