Eccentric or bust

Posted: August 9, 2009 in Random

Recently I’ve wondered why we’ve lost the concept of eccentricity, the UK used to be the world leader in it 😉

I think the unusual, colourful people that you meet are what gives life its flavour. While I still meet them, everyone seems more guarded somehow. People don’t tend to show their hand until they know that you’re not going to judge them. Its kind of a sad situation.

There are probably a lot of reasons for this: fear of being medicalised, our glorious leader (and predecessors) wanting to make everyone as bone-numbingly dull as he is or perhaps the reality tv freakshow giving difference a bad name.

Whatever the cause is, I miss it though… an overly conformist (or even just an outwardly conformist) world would be far far too dull for my liking. So lets bring it back, a bit of leftfieldism, to break the daily grind. If you haven’t tried it yet, you don’t know what you’re missing.

Love and Peace
