You Are An Original

Do you ever feel like a drop in a bucket or lost in a crowd, like your voice resonates with the bland sameness of what’s been said before?  After all, the expression ‘there is nothing new under the sun’ was coined for a reason, right? Or maybe that’s a verse in the Bible.  If I remember correctly it’s in Ecclesiastes. 

I wrote a song about this subject some years back.  an originalIt had dawned on me that DNA and fingerprints prove that each of us is an original.  We aren’t a copy of someone else.  We may look or sound somewhat like someone else, especially before we tap into our original-ness.  We may try on different types and sizes in an attempt to discover our authentic selves by emulating those we admire.  But when we grow weary of living up to a contrived image, we can finally settle down into who we really are, comfortable in our own skin. You can almost hear a collective sigh from everyone who knows us:  “There, so glad you settled that. ”

Do you fully understand the value in a true original work of art like a Monet or a Rembrandt?  I’m not sure I get it yet, but I’m thinking about it.  In fact, I’m reworking the earlier version of my song that I named Original to make it a little more relevant — how can I best get my thoughts across without overworking it, if you know what I mean.  “Let me tell you, you are Original Music, a song never sung before – beautiful lines of an incomparable score. . .” 

We are each a One-Of-A-Kind Masterpiece, whose individual worth the markets of this world can’t accurately price.  We may feel worthless from time to time, but if we were up for sale, we would all garner a much higher price than we realize!

All my comments Lost TWICE!

Home OfficeOk, so I’m on a learning curve. Because I’m receiving comment spam I changed my settings and added a few key words to the black list and it deleted all my comments, NOT ONCE BUT TWICE, in one sweep.

So Andy, Jodie, Alisa, Gary, Christy, Ellen and Scott now we can no longer see your lovely thoughts, and I apologize. Bear with me while I learn to navigate in this new beautiful world and discover how to effectively keep the evil infiltrators at bay.
