Option A

OK. I’ve been meaning to ask you something, but I’ve never been sure how best to articulate it …

but how can you tell if

A.  You are talented but not demonstrating it nearly enough to get noticed, thus denying the world of your talents?

versus

B. Not having talents to demonstrate?

I feel like I alternate between either option. But lately I prefer option A.

Although option A feels like more of a character flaw. There’s something in my character that keeps tripping me up, keeping me in my place, not moving towards my goals and desires and then freezing up as I watch the clock expire. Getting me nowhere.

Wouldn’t it be easier to not have any talents at all? Or goals? Or desires?

Then there would be so much less to panic about.

About The Lost Pedestrian

In my wanderings throughout the moments/days/years, I try in earnest to find the mystical within the mundane and the mundane within the mystical, oftentimes confusing one from the other. I have wandered and roamed through many a city, many a town, in a state of wonder and bewilderment, without necessarily going anywhere. I am easily lost, but eventually found. (I am guessing you have just found me). My sincere hope is that you will find Something in this warehouse of thought, memory and false memory, words, numbers, tangents, murmurs, echoes (lots and lots of echoes), voices, dreams, and other paraphernalia.
