#NeverCool (The life of an observer)
Jason Theodor

You are Hai-ly kul in my books.

I couldn’t begin to explain how closely I identify with almost everything you have said here (except the being an advertising executive part, but I can substitute artist there). As a fellow observer, I totally get your “pain,” but I have come to accept and enjoy that role. I no more need to be outwardly labeled as cool than I require being adored by a stadium of ravenous fans or taking part in every social event that flutters around me. But in personal terms, it is important that I am cool with who I am and what I choose to do.

It makes me think of belly buttons (lol). They are concave or convex – affectionately called innies or outies. Navels may have different points of reference, but both are the indelible imprint of how we came to be.

Here is a haikul back atcha:

All are marked at birth

Scars may intrude or protrude

We call them navels

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
