Most people have hundreds, if not thousands, of thoughts cross their mind everyday. For myself, more often than not these thoughts consist of sports, politics, and/or… sex, drugs, family, war, religion, animals, guns, health… Ehh, lets just say random thoughts.
What is the point of this site?
Well, like most blog endeavors, there is a fairly profound egotistical aspect to it. There’s a part of me that feels like I would be doing a great disservice to this country, and the world as a whole, if I would go my entire life without sharing my opinion on stuff.
Sure, I have discussion with family/friends/coworkers all the time which allows me to express my opinion… But that’s not enough. It’s not nearly enough I say! I need to share my insight with the world. Because, in case you haven’t heard, my voice matters. I’m kind of a big deal.
Yes, I know, it sounds pretty arrogant (I have literally thought to myself, on several occasion, “How hard can it be to fix the economy?”).
The purpose of this site is to provoke thought, conversation, rebuttals even. It’s to allow people from all different walks of life to get a view of things from a totally different perceptive. If you can narrowed down most difference in the world, it usually all comes down to perspective.
Say we both work in the same 80 story building. Both of our office are on the north side of the building, the only difference is my office is on the 1st floor, and when I look out my window, I see the hustle and bustle of the city, up close and personal. Your office is on the 80th floor, and you view is of a majestic skyline. Sure you can see the hustle and bustle of the city, but from where you look, it all looks so small. From where I look, it all seems so big.
Who has the better view? You can make a case for either one.
Maybe you like being on the ground floor, so close to people you get a brief earful of their conversations as they walk by. You can feel the pulse of the city, the energy of the people is tangible.
Maybe you like the view from the top, were it’s secluded, serene, picturesque.
Who’s to say which is better?
Me, that’s who.
And I’ll tell you right now, the view from the 80th floor is awesome! It’s so beautiful and you can see for miles and miles. It is a little lonely up there though. You’re view doesn’t change much, you’re going to see the same skyline today as you will tomorrow. And you better not fall out the window, you’re not surviving that fall.
So maybe the 1st floor office is better. You’re close to the ground so no risk of injury from a fall. And because your view is street level, you see people walking to and fro all day, so you’re landscape is somewhat fluid. It sure is easier to make a connection to people when you’re that close. But, everyone is only an arms length away from you and people are so germy so you’ll probably get sick more often. And lets not forget all the crazies walking around; when you’re office is on the ground floor, they have easy access to you!
Maybe neither one is better. Just different.
