All Apologies Ms. Griffin

I know I’m a little behind with the blogging and this is probably old news by now but something that struck me. I understand that anyone in the public’s eye has a very unique position in that a few seconds coupled with a stupid decision can really alter their world. The problem is those decisions come so quickly, would anyone of us recognize one? I know I’ve made a flippant remark or two that I later regretted. The benefit of someone in my case is my circle is so small that remark disappears. Even should I post a picture, my level of celebrity is such that seconds later that picture is swallowed up and lost to the cacophony of the Internet. That may not always be true. I guess a part of me should hope to be so famous that my stupid decisions become news worthy and set off a flood of commentary. Oh the things I could say. In the end, though, stupidity shouldn’t be front page, or even third screen news. Wouldn’t that be a great word to live in? I know I’m a dreamer, but then again wasn’t the Internet created by a bunch of dreamers?

  • A creative person need not apologize. Imagine if the painter of the Sistine Chapel apologized? Imagine what would have been if he changed his course? He was a good painter and sculptor. He understood the differences between light and dark. He was born with a talent. He worked and developed that talent. He was not always well known or appreciated. Today I am onboard an airplanes, crossing oceans to see the work of Michaelangelo.
