Unfortunately we are still trapped in the old-school-thinking that implies that “everything nice has to end” and, regardless my deepest efforts, so did our adventure as TheOutOfMind.
It is always sad to abandon one of its own projects, worse if this project in particular is a “whole new thing” like TheOutOfMind has been. Sadly, I must admit that It was only a dream, shared by so few people around the globe that in fact was soon condemned to be self-referential.
I’ve learned a lot, more than in a lifetime,
just by looking through the mirror
listening to the pale reflection of myself,
speaking what I knew once, but tried to forget.
“To be or not to be, that is the question” once said Shakespeare,
And, truth to be told, that is the most important question for people like us.
I’ve learned that reason, intellect, logic, and all related abilities are only highly developed in a very low percentage of population,
and meeting “one of a kind” in such a short lifespan is something literary called “a miracle”.
But I also learned not to doubt myself,
not to question my abilities,
not to forget “who I am” just to please someone else….
I’ve learned, the hard-way, that we can’t protect everyone
even if I’m a physician, which honestly is the renowned “cherry on the cake”.
I’ve learned that at some point in the life, expecially for those like me, someone will ask to bear the guilts of the universe… and we might as well surrended to the request because we hope in a better tomorrow.
That is the point: to be “us” or to not be “us”,
to ignore what we can do,
to ignore our uniqueness,
hoping that we can “blend trough” and live another day as “the others”.
I have tried, I swear, I have tried to do so…
I have putted behind so much and so many things hoping for a “better future” that I know realize how stupid I had been.
We can not force a flower to blossom,
not even because we know how beautiful it could be.
We can teach, if other wants to learn,
But be careful: prejudice will always haunt you!
This will be my last writing as TheOutOfMind: it is a closure of a long period, a farewell to someone, and the acceptance of a path chosen a very long time ago. Click.
