I <3 Originals…


Some might say, that there is nothing new. That everything which was will be again, and all ideas are just re-hashes of ideas which were thought of by others back in ancient times. It is ironic then that in imitation often comes innovation, and the new comes from each generations attempt to come to terms with the past.


What then is originality? Why do we grab onto something which is only an idea, a thing, a picture, a thought? What is there about a particular moment who’s time has come? I have often wondered about this. This thing is part of everything we do, our choices, how we live our lives and it seems sometimes that we are judged more harshly for choosing our own path. I have great admiration for the originals of this world, for those who are outstanding in their field because so often they are left standing alone.


It is not for me to tell you what to think. I am not so much of an expert on these matters to even attempt to guide you, because it’s not really what we think that matters, it’s what we do. We lose too much of ourselves to the demands of society, we give away pieces of our soul, to pay our bills, feed our families and find acceptance in this world. So my thoughts right now are this; to be original, just be yourself. Nothing more is needed.
