We interrupt our regular programming

In the vain of all sensational news flashes, this week I decided to interrupt all scheduled broadcasting and make a couple of out of character decisions.

I take change seriously and I despise stagnation. Daily life and routine seems only to breed more of the same in my life. Work, TV, sleep, work....on and on ad infinitum punctuated by the occassional life changing event in the company of inspirational folk.

It's easy to let life pass by and in the process miss opportunities for the sake of comfort and convenience. So often it is a case of "better the devil you know". Inertia is a powerful force and so often I can feel it strangling the life out of my bones.

While it is not possible to re-invent the wheel, this week I made some attempts at making mine more aero-dynamic. I long for more spontaneity, for more moments of insanity and acts of random stupidity. I want to be random in the true sense of the word.

So what's with the vaguaries?

Details at this pont are sketchy and it is not yet possible to guage whether my "decisions" will bear any fruit but the line has been drawn. From this point, normal is out the door. I will continue to sing loudly and out of tune to classic 80s tracks, I will get up and go to work in the morning, the sun will rise in the East but it will rise on a different me.

I will break the mould and I wll be unpredictable..


  1. And it feels good to break from the mould and all of the old predictable patterns, right? I'm cheering you on!

  2. You inspire me to be unpredictable. What should my next random thng be?? I have to figure it out.

  3. Good luck to you, Mr. Vague. Let us know more details sometime.

  4. You've also inspired me, again. Unpredictable. To find what I once had, and how I lived. Before comfort and convenience set in. Thanks for writing this, Simon. Hope the fruit blossoms from the decisions you've made, my friend.

  5. normal is so overrated. BRING ON THE RANDOM AND SPONTANEOUS!
