a recent friend opened a blog ( http://myfutileblabs.posterous.com/ ) and published one post. the post ended this way:“…Pretty standing boring blog I think. Oh well. Gotta work on my integrity. Not as in truth and honesty. As in, standing for what I believe in and fuck the rest. Because an American mind definitely needs something like that in a world that is not so American at all. Especially…when it comes to politics and religion. Ex both of them out, and I think we could create something wonderful. Keep spirituality though…this is something quite natural and enjoyable…” my reply: “p.s. boring is something we say to ourselves to protect ourselves in case of failure; when deep inside we know that it’s very well not the case.” yours, will twitter: @williamchoukeir p.s. sometimes, when you’re not underestimating yourself, purposefully decreasing the expectations of the audience leads them to having a better, richer experience.
