Gullible on the Ceiling.

April 1, 2010

Anyone who knows me in the slightest, knows that I am most likely *the* must gullible human being on the planet.  Is it a little silly to post that on the interwebz? On April Fools Day?(!) Probably. But it’s the truth.

As my blog title purports, I have profound faith in the absurd. The more unlikely something is, the higher the probability of my believing it. Why? Because, art imitates life. The universe trends from order to chaos. The fact of the matter is, most of us couldn’t even make this shit up if we tried!

Uncanny timing, bizarre encounters, cameo appearances, random explosions, long-lost-twin-brothers; I believe every plot twist. The dramatic pauses, the nefarious subtext, the fuzzy-edged flashbacks, the lone piano and entire string section. In my version, they are all there.

Is it naive to be a believer? Perhaps. But reality is what we make it, nothing more, nothing less. Some people live their whole lives waiting for a moment– a slow-mo entrance or blaze of pyrotechnic glory– the moment that quickens the pulse, shortens the breath, or lights the bulb above our heads. A-ha!

For me, life is less “Titanic,” more “Days of Our Lives.” Armed with appropriately witty dialogue and melodramatic backstories, the extraordinary characters in this saga rarely encounter the ordinary. And there are no accidents.

The fool doth think he is wise, but the wise man knows himself to be a fool. [[AsYouLikeIt.WilliamShakespeare]]
