standing tall

As written previously some strange encounters and experiences only hit the full impact mark with some delay.


On a recent event I was viciously struck, once again, by the fact how people are trying so hard to stand out from the crowd.


Clutching for recognition haunted and conforming to some distant paradigm.

In an almost perverted way of begging for attention, they act just merely all the same…

Waiting for a miracle to get noticed, dwelling around (could be a side effect of too many mojo-cocktails though) with eyes closed to their own originality.


Peculiar fact: they want to stand out and simultaneously being simply slightly different from the crowd terrifies them …


Exhausted by too much conversation, by all those attempts to come up with jokey and lively epigrams as the hours and the evening evolve, they seem to fill less and less the room, a kind of emptiness silently surrounding them. Awaiting some miracle solution or advice on how to navigate the crowd.


Wouldn’t it be more simple, every now and then, just to merciless avoid the crowd and just stand tall, against the wind …
