Enthusiasm In Contagious

Enthusiasm is contagious.  I find it amusing that people will listen to you as long as you SOUND like you know what you’re talking about regardless of whether or not you actually DO know what you’re talking about.  It seems as though many people are looking for someone to talk to and are excited about listening to someone who SOUNDS like they’re informed and legit.  Enthusiasm is contagious in that regard.  I’ve been in many situations (which are entertaining to me) where I get excited and enthusiastic about something (of which I completely fabricate) and speak “intelligently” about it just to experiment and see what people’s reactions are.  Oddly enough, many of them smile and jump on the enthusiasm bandwagon with me!  I always reveal afterwards, of course, so as not to ultimately steer someone in the wrong direction, that I completely made it up…but it doesn’t change the fact that their initial inclinations are to believe!  Enthusiasm is contagious…regardless of whether or not it’s caused by some concrete culprit or by some element of fabrication.  Use it wisely.

Shades of Blue

Shades Scruff Gallery V2

Open up the still, let the wisdom flow
Tumble down the hill like a drunken stone
Carry me away, show me how to pray
Lead the way as the story all unfolds

Teach me of the old, now, baby
Teach me of the new
Open up my eyes to all the different shades of blue

Shake the apple tree, watch the oranges fall
Let tomorrow be what the past recalls
Gypsy in the sky, velvet flying by
Cover up the lies behind the wall

Teach me of the old, now, baby
Teach me of the new
Open up my eyes to all the different shades of blue

Look into the eyes of the man in glass
Try to see inside the reflection’s past
Windows in our doors, spy holes in the floor
Try to find to cure just as you collapse

Teach me of the old, now, baby
Teach me of the new
Open up my eyes to all the different shades of blue
