Your ‘Authentic Swing.’
“Yep — Inside each and every one of us is one true authentic swing — Somethin’ we were born with — Somethin’ that’s ours and ours alone — Somethin’ that can’t be taught to ya or learned — Somethin’ that got to be remembered — Over time the world can, rob us of that swing — It get buried inside us under all our wouldas and couldas and shouldas — Some folk even forget what their swing was like –” -The Legend of Bagger Vance.
All of us here, have something similar inside of us all. For what ever reason we are all creators. We have something to say, something to show. No one else understands this but the one’s we discover want to hear those words and see those images. Those are the people we connect with; something is shared there. To be who you really are demands work. Sometimes life gets in the way, some times we are detoured by a life event, world pandemic, car crash or very simply we allow ourselves to forget. I believe that this platform was necessary, that it was needed, for people like us. It’s a place that we can be ourselves and show our ‘authentic swing.’ When you want to have a powerful mind-set, you have to associate with others that already do and also want that same thing. That’s this place, and I realized a short time ago that magic will happen at those times we share that mindset…together. We want to tell stories of how the world could be or should be and for that we are the one’s who give inspiration. We have a visions of a thousand worlds in our own minds. We are all ‘Seers.’ No matter what, don’t let the world get you down. Stay true to yourself, stay strong. I know for certain that none of us are alone in our endeavors. We are here.
