The Revolution In Me...

I like the notion of a revolution inside.

True revolution for me is found not on the streets or on demonstrations. It doesn't come from the mouths of those who profess their own radicalism, but rather lives in the hearts & minds of people everywhere who struggle to free themselves from the constraints of their lives, the oppression forced upon them by the expectation to conform and the homogeneity of much of modern society.

In life I think you should follow your heart not follow the crowd; pursue the road less travelled, but my experience tells me that there is always a metaphorical big stick waiting to knock you back.

"Be yourself" is a simple maxim but an often impossible dream. However, if you are a true revolutionary you never give up, & although I have never totally escaped the rat race, I'm happy to let the more deserving rats win it whilst jogging along aimlessly at the back.

Just the ramblings of an old fool :-)
