I have been avoiding writing about the primary thing on my mind these days--the future and how to get there. I am clueless as to what is next and freaking bored with the present. No work on the horizon and that is hell for a task-driven person.

PERSPECTIVE... The Difference Between the Brilliant and the Merely Accomplished

"Perspective/Smart people see too much, know too much. They're too easily distracted by insight and revelation. The thoughts pile up until there's too much to filter. Perceptive people are ultimately crushed under the weight of their own comprehension. They know the merciless realities of life."
from Hard Stop by Chris Knopf

Perception becomes a language... The far greater part of what is supposed to be perception is only the body of ideas which a perception has awakened.
