Wholly Strange and New by Bridget Pilloud
Can you remember a moment in your life when you had life in yourself and it was wholly strange and new? Can you remember the moment when you stopped walking a path of someone else, and started cutting your own? Write about that moment. And if you haven’t experienced it yet, let the miracle play out in your mind’s eye and write about that moment in your future.
In someways every day is strange and new.
An experience like the first time you fly, or dive, etc…is an incredible experience…but unless you are Wilbur Wright or Neil Armstrong, etc you are still following someone else.
Maybe I’m too much a cynic to embrace this question, I firmly believe that “there is nothing new under the sun”.
Everyday I am learning from peers, those ahead of me, those behind, etc.
I truly enjoy taking the pieces of set of learning, and applying them in another to get new, and perhaps unexpected results from this synthesis.
I just lack the conceit to call it original…or maybe I just have set the bar very high for what it takes to be a true revolutionary.
