Embrace the unusual

I was walking by Freak’s Alley Outdoor Gallery down on Bannock with Beth Hawes Proulx after Saturday market today and we were talking about the art, I said that I was not as crazy about this years selection of murals but that it didn’t matter it I liked them as long as they were there to help add to the freakyness of Boise.
We live in a very homogenized world where daily people are told what is normal and that they should be Average and that only certain ways of dressing, looking and certain levels of financial success define happiness and so every act against that homogenization is important.
I don’t have to like someone’s art, or like their expression of self through body modification or their choice of dress to enjoy the fact that they have chosen to experience the unusual and embrace it.
Keep the world Freaky one act of self expression at a time.
Hemingway said in The Rabbit Hole Runs Deep “Live a full life of the mind, exhilarated by new ideas, intoxicated by the romance of the unusual.”
