Work hard, Play hard... et un peu de déconne!

Quand il n'est pas occupé par son herbier, le petit P sème des pierres blanches dans la forêt... Adepte de vieilles séries policères allemandes, il n'est pas peu commun de le trouver en train de manger la choucroûte devant la télé!

Blows and insights...

Whenever I get the time to give a deep look at humanity, I am always baffled by the ability to produce some of the best you could imagine among a bulk of mid-range self-centered pulsion-driven average Joe's... Yet, most of us excel in something. Is it just the fact that you need a kick to feel you are alive? What floats each and every one's boat is likely of great diversity.

And whenever I try to see where I fit in, I find myself to be average Joe in most regards. So that's the deal... This week-end I got routinely checked for alcohol while driving home. Fare thee well driving license!
The fact that the car following us crashed into the railings 500 meters from the check didn't influence anything. Anyway I will keep you posted on this matter...

So lately my inside average Joe wanted to quote some smart-ass remark from Good Will Hunting in order to feel good about myself. In doing so I stumbled across the full script, that I have ended up reading most of (thus also explaining some of my recent tiredness, I will admit)!

I will leave you with something that might apply to me quite strongly:

SEAN (Robin Williams) Jesus Christ, you are an amateur.
WILL (Matt Damon) I know what I'm doing. She's different from the other girls I met. We have a really good time. She's smart, beautiful, fun...
SEAN So Christ, call her up.
WILL Why? So I can realize she's not so smart. That she's boring. You don't get it. Right now she's perfect, I don't want to ruin that.
SEAN And right now you're perfect too. Maybe you don't want to ruin that.

So that might very well be the deal with my inside average Joe not wanting to give up this social armor I built... Who knows?

Ciao, P

PS: Oh and I finished reading The Alchimist by P Coehlo. It and Cinema Paradiso are really trying to be the same thing... Follow and listen to yourself being the best journey, while sparsely administrating pearls of wisdoms in an innocent manner in order not to seem to pedantic! This apparently gets to the audience, and it got to me too of course, but I must admit that in hindsight I like to think about things myself instead of relying on some commonly accepted moral principles, be they religious or not... So I guess that I find the opus a bit to patronizing for my liking!
