I don’t know if it’s because I’m stupid, or because my mind is just moving so quickly that sometimes I just lose track of things. I like to think it’s because of the latter. Because, well, who likes to think of themselves as stupid. Then again, given the standard in which I view myself, I must admit, in fact, I know for sure, that I am, quite stupid. And that was a rather hard fact to bear growing up. But now, I take it wholeheartedly. The world’s just too vast and there’s just too many things for me to know in order to ever reach the status of being called “smart”. If anything, the only smart people in the world are those who are smart in clearly defined areas. Nobody is smart in the worldly sense of the word. And, well, if this person does exist, I’d like to meet him (or her). But for now, I’ll continue doing what I can with what little I have. Grabbing at thoughts whenever possible. Fleshing them out with words on paper for as long as I remember. And moving my fingers across this keyboard to share it with you. I lose my train of thought quite often, and this post is no exception.
