At work this morning I started out in a bad mood...and I don't know how or when, but all of the sudden I was in a good mood. So it's been kind of a hypercolor day. Does anyone remember those shirts? Why did they stop making them?
I have two thoughts right now:
First, my friend Alex and I have often debated about whether or not one person can truly change the world. Let me be honest here, sometimes Al and I argue and one of us is taking a side we actually don't agree with. Just for the sake of a good argument. That seems strange but it works. I think on this subject both of us actually do "have a side". I believe that only when we work together, in groups, can anything truly change. And Al thinks that one person can change things. I guess mine is more pessimistic? I was thinking about this in relation to one of DMB's new songs...honestly, I have no point to blog about it...i just wonder if my belief is pessimistic. Isn't it optimistic in the worst way? That we all have to hold hands/have harmony in order for things to work? That sounds lame.
Second, I've been toying with the idea of taking an art class for ages now. I used to love art (think grade school). There are thousands of adult drawing/painting/ceramics classes in the city. I really have no excuse not to do it. But I'm afraid. This is something I think I would really enjoy and what if I walk in and everyone is drawing these beautiful bowls of fruit and mine is a bunch of shaky lines. Really fear is holding me back which is so weak. And maybe shaky lines could be beautiful?
By the way, I refuse to take that liberal conservative quiz. I'm liberal.
