"When you get those rare moments of clarity, those flashes when the universe makes sense, you try desperately to hold on to them. They are the life boats for the darker times, when the vastness of it all, the incomprehensible nature of life is completely illusive. So the question becomes, or should have been all a long... What would you do if you knew you only had one day, or one week, or one month to live. What life boat would you grab on to? What secret would you tell? What band would you see? What person would you declare your love to? What wish would you fulfill? What exotic locale would you fly to for coffee? What book would you write?"

Morph up the Confidence

So today I got to go to something in my county called, "Victorian Days" where one of our small (old) towns transforms itself back to the Victorian Era and the townspeople dress up to the time period and they do Victorian type events and so house tours, etc. It's pretty neat!

Pictures from the funtastic Victorian day:

So yay! But thats not the point of this blog (post). This is:


So, living a kind of sheltered life (apparently so) I had no idea these existed! But, sure enough, at this VICTORIAN DAYS, two youngins (maybe? They could have been old I guess?) came out of nowhere, one came up to me and wanted a high five, and the other did a cart wheel and then they ran off giggling. I sort of was just flabbergasted and awestruck and I wasn't sure really how to react to that. Except, its kind of hard to surprise me, so naturally I sort of just kept walking like nothing happened. But on the inside my mind was like, whhaa?

So it got me thinking, as I watched these two....people...parade down the street, saying hello to people, doing cartwheels...high fiving, taking funny pictures....its all stuff they most likely would never do if they were identifiable. So it got me thinking (so much thinking going on here!) what would I do if I were unidentifiable? If no one would ever know it was me? Completely anonymous, and yet so very noticeable? It's easier to be silly, easier to be confident, and playful....

What would you do if no one knew it was you? Kinda sounds fun, doesn't it?

Part of me says I would never do it because I'd be too embarassed....but...thats silly, because no one would know! Hmm.....maybe one day! Thing is this is the first time I've seen this in America. Am I just that sheltered or is this a more European thing? Hmmm..
