Head In The Clouds.

“I’ve spent a lot of time staring at the clouds, or random shapes in my surroundings really, trying to make sense of what those random shapes look like. There’s some sort of peace in trying to look at the world in a way that it could be, I suppose. It gets boring to look at the surface of something and decide that there’s probably nothing more to it, anyway. People are always going to be out there telling you to get down from the clouds and get yourselves back on the ground, but then they go ahead and build skyscrapers as if we didn’t already have a whole new perspective. If there’s one thing I’ve learned, so far, it is that people will try to tell you that you’re broken or that something is wrong with you if you don’t conform to the masses. It’s always the same people wanting to read and watch fantasy and sci-fi as if it isn’t all a product of our ‘slightly broken’ way of looking at the world. Funny, isn’t it? I hate to be bitter about it but there are so many people out there who try to tell those with a different perspective that they’re ‘wrong’, right away, without so much as even trying to look at things from their eyes. Then again, that’s just the way it is and that’s the way it has always been. But that still isn’t an excuse for us to not want to have a new take on life. And it definitely isn’t an excuse to mock people who look at things differently. After all, a worm’s eye-view and a bird’s eye-view are never the same. To everybody who sees the world a little differently, you’re definitely not broken and there’s no reason for you to keep it all to yourselves. That doesn’t mean you actively advocate for things that go against humanity, of course, but I’ve always believed that we should all be open to looking at things differently because there’s always so much more to learn. And learning like that doesn’t happen if we don’t want to change the way we think. I don’t know where all of this is coming from, today, but I really hope people give this a thought or two.”
