Round Pegs in Sqaure Holes...

Fitting round pegs in square holes sounds painful doesn’t it…
It can be…
I have been accursed with round pegs in square holes syndrome…
Have had it since….
Well forever…
Some say it’s a blessing…
Usually it is a square hole…saying that...
And mostly I think it is…
But some days it is a tiresome brain drain…
Let me define what I am saying…
Most people relate to likeminded, like-interested people…I know I am chewing up words, but stay with me...
Thinkers like other thinkers…
Talkers like other talkers…
Most friends are of the same race…
See where I am headed…
Well I have always had a tendency to embrace…
The different…{anyone who has read my books are going umm hmm}
I like the sameness also…but the differences will grab me every time…
When I am in the car with my man, we listen to jazz…
With my sons it is usually hip-hop…
My aunt likes the blues...the bluer the better...
However when you get in my car…
You are going to get, Old-School R&B, hip-hop, jazz, gospel-contemporary and traditional….
You might even hear me singing some country, love Garth…then segue over to some
John Lee Hooker or Three Dog Night...
It is just how I roll…
But what gets me sometimes is when…
Try as I might to be encompassing…
Some of those square holes will take me there…
And I find myself asking myself…why can’t I just be a damn…
Jazz lover…
Old School head…
Or aging Hip-hopper…
Middle-aged surburbanite…
Why in the HAIL am I trying so doggone hard…
Then Billy Preston starts singing in my ear…
“That’s the way God planned it, ‘cause that’s the way he wants it to be…”
Okay…..

Talkers like other talkers…

Hmm... I've found that talkers like quiet folks so they can do all the talking... LOL :-)

But seriously, I'm feeling this post. I find myself realizing all the more that all my complexity and contradictions make me who I am. I can fit in most places and can vibe with a variety of folks and settings, because I remain open. I like all kinds of music. I like to read all kinds of books. And even though I have my favoites, I find that there is variety in those. I'm cool with that. It makes life rich and full of possibilities... Great post as usual!
