Hi kids, Here's a little something worthy of a post-it-note on your bathroom mirror:
“I’ve taken a certain territory, and I’ve tried to maintain it and administrate it with the very best of my capacities. And I will continue to administrate this tiny territory until I’m too weak to do it.” – Leonard Cohen quoted in “Who Held a Gun to Leonard Cohen’s head” by Tim deLisle –The Guardian.
I say: Hallelujah brother! I mean, isn’t that what its all about? Staking out that tiny piece of territory no one else can occupy? Whatever metaphor you use, "finding your voice", "being authentic", it adds up to the same thing: Only you can see the world through your eyes and your offering is unique. Sometimes finding that weedy half-acre and staking it out IS the work. Thanks to Sean Bell for his thoughtful piece in PopMatters.com.
If you don't know Ed Sheeran, here's one reason his name is goin' 'round. And kids, please don't try this at home without adult supervision:
