A few have it

Even fewer enjoy watching it

Palatable for the ones you see occasionally

Tolerated for the folks you see all the time

Cannot be taught

Cannot be bought

Cannot be mastered

At the age of 10 you are a hipper child (too much sugar)

At the age of 30 you live in La La Land (dreamer)

But at the age of 50, surrounded by other 50s you are downright irritating

I have been all the above. And wasn’t until an acquaintance dying from cancer, mentioned my enthusiasm in an email a few years back that I began to put the pieces together.  I recognized that I can count on one half of my hand the amount of people that know me that really digs my aptitude, but for most my enthusiasm is the common denominator during many occasions when things seem to take an undesirable turn.


This article is part of the Rewind Series 



“I will not make you dependent on me.  My approach is to find alternative options under a circumstance and open new doors into a resolution of old problems. Clear the docket so you can see things from other angles as you absorb other possibilities. In time, after you had conquered your needs, you will be able to replace what does not work, accept what you cannot change, and accomplish what you want.”

If my writing helped or entertained you in any way, please consider a donation to assist Edge of Humanity Magazine to continue to provide neutral, outside of the box content.


Neutrality comes with the price of being disconnected. Society is composed of like-minded people; teal lovers search for bluish-green connections, and the burnt sienna worshipers choose to navigate a path that’s deep reddish brown. Embracing the color wheel will yield richer exposure and isolation.
There is no glory in neutrality.

Thank you.
