AN UNCOMMON THOUGHT

"The real trick to life is not to be in the know, but to be in the mystery."

Be.


Maybe I’m getting to the age when I’m starting to be senile or nostalgic or both, but people are so angry now. You used to be able to disagree with people and still be friends. Now you hear these talk shows, and everyone who believes differently from you is a moron and an idiot - both on the Right and the Left.  Extremism is so easy. You've got your position, and that's it. It doesn't take much thought. And when you go far enough to the right you meet the same idiots coming around from the left.  If a person is confident enough in the way they feel, whether it's an art form or whether it's just in life, it comes off -- you don't have anything to prove; you can just be who you are.
