What if you dared to be the odd man out?
Haven't we all known someone whose enthusiasm, instead of being infectious, made us want to step back a bit? Cross to the other side of the party and engage in conversation just a little more mundane?
But what if it's that "odd" character, who allows you to close your evening with the feeling that night had indeed been different, that somehow your mind had been sparked?
I have wasted so much energy trying not to be that odd ball.
What is the point of all your adventures? What is the point of your life?
I began to wonder, if I kept it all inside, what was the point of having experiences at all.
Here I am, odddness and all, writing about everything from classic literature and philosophy, to wishing I knew more about math, to everything Eastern, to occult theory and practice, to drawing (which I can't do, but want to), to software, To Reality TV, to People Magazine, to Gossip Girl, and to who is the latest celebrity to come out.
Did you know that even a celebrity's death can show us how art connects us all?
Art, and for me novels, can change the world.
