I seem to keep going in different directions with this week’s Sunday Scribblings #64 Eccentricity. I’m having the same problem that I’ve had all week — my focusing gene has gone on the fritz for some unknown reason.
It appears to me that we are all to one extent or another eccentric. After all, who wants to be a cookie cutout of the person sitting next to you? Our differences make us unique and interesting.
The dictionary defines eccentric as an adjective or noun used by a person who thinks that your behavior is not within their norm. Kind of a narrow minded view, wouldn’t you say? So really — who’s to say what is eccentric and what isn’t? Where is the line?
I think that one of the lessons of tolerance should be that as long as what someone else is doing is not hurting you, leave it alone.
Just my opinion.
