Clueless Power

This is a great article about the power of being dumb. Okay, maybe not dumb, but at least clueless. I would say the success I’ve had on the web and in almost all areas of my life is because I’m naive enough to think anything is possible.

The clueless accomplish amazing things—not necessarily because we’re bold, brilliant innovators, but perhaps because we just don’t know any better. We see the simplicity of the forest while Those Who Know are overanalyzing the complex subtleties of the trees (and miss the point). Sometimes NOT knowing about a “problem” weakens (or eliminates) it…

…What if “clueless” is simply a label the glass-half-empty folks give the glass-half-full folks. If we’re optimistic, we must not have a clue. What if we simply see the world through a different lens? A lens that opens doors and windows the cynical and pessimistic are too busy dissing to notice?

Read the whole article (2 minutes).

Small Town Stories

My mother-in-law has been writing some really funny stories— memories from her past. She’s been sending them to Joanne to edit, and yesterday we decided we would set up a blog for her.

Please visit her site, SmallTownStories.blogspot.com read her first post, and leave a comment. I’m sure she’d appreciate your thoughts.

Thanks!

Anne Rice Turns to Christ

Heard news today… Author of the famous vampire books, Anne Rice, has decided to write about Jesus life in three books.

“I was ready to do violence to my career,” Rice added. But the author, who returned to the Catholic Church after leaving as a teenager, needed a more inspirational subject. “I mean, I was in despair,” Rice said.

Interesting!

Katrina

This site uses the Google API to report on the various areas affected by Huricane Katrina. Very interesting.
