I’m back on my regular beat in Little Italy today. After being away for like two weeks everything seems fresh and new to me. The same streets and the same buildings and the same scenes and even the same people look fresh and new to me. It’s probably something psychological; but isn’t that the way it is with every blogger and writer? Isn’t that what we all have to offer to the world? Our own unique take on reality? If you are a blogger or a writer don’t suppress your uniqueness or your weirdness or your originality.
(I mean you have to keep it under control. You don’t want to become a murderer.)
Nurture it. Your uniqueness or your weirdness or your originality is what will make your work standout. And don’t worry. There will be people on the Internet who will plug into what you are into, because if you are into it you better believe other people are into it, too. But they don’t see reality “exactly” the way you see it just like there are billions of people on the Earth but no two people have the “exact” same fingerprints. Think about that. You are unique. Now get back to blogging and writing.
You are plugging into the Universal Subconscious…
I didn’t mean to get Zen on you. But everytime I go from two weeks of downtime to two weeks of being on my regular beat in Little Italy it’s like I’ve been reborn. That’s a good thing for a baby boomer.
