The Crazy Ones ...!

To all my fellow cohorts -- you know who you are...!
(Got this from my co-crazy friend, Annie!)

Here's to the crazy ones.
The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers.
The round pegs in the square holes.
The ones who see things differently.
They're not fond of rules.
And they have no respect for the status quo.

You can praise them, disagree with them, quote them,
disbelieve them, glorify or vilify them.
About the only thing you can't do is ignore them.
Because they change things.
They invent. They imagine.
They heal. They explore. They create. They inspire.
They push the human race forward.
Maybe they have to be crazy.

How else can you stare at an empty canvas and see a work of art?
Or sit in silence and hear a song that’s never been written?
Or gaze at a red planet and see a laboratory on wheels?
While some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius.

Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world,
are the ones who do.

Insanity is a talent -- I always knew this!

Shalom, Dena

Dena said...

Harry - you're a riot! You want the good kind of sanity ... not what passes for sanity...! But since you excel at the latter, you get this.

That's one of the nicest things anyone's ever said to me, Dena:)

I hope you're having a good time in Texas, and I look forward to the recordings.
