Amazing! - The first word that came to my mind after seeing it
¿You know? Sometimes when you see something, and you dont know
what to say, when it simply is on another level of excelence that
you simply recure to such simple and overused words like
"amazing". I perfectly knew that what i was looking at was much
more than amazing, yet, somehow my small, deeply incapacitated
human mind could only make for that word, "amazing". ¿Who
So there I was just sitting on a small bench at Dr. Dunhills'
laboratory, I had been there plenty of times, probably more times
than I would like to admit. You may ask yourself, ¿Why would
someone feel ashamed of being able to attend the worlds most
famous, and respected scientist? Well, I was, I guess I will
always be ¿or always have been? You see, I always dreamed big, I
always dreamed I would discover some sort of device that would
amount to something great, something "Amazing", something that
would change the way people look at things.
After years of shutting my self down, research, studying,
attending all kinds of lectures, and trying to make somebody
notice my efforts, I finally got it. My acceptance letter, this
was no ordinary acceptance letter, oh no it defenitely wasn't.
You see, everybody goes to harvard, everybody goes to yale,
oxford, stanford, etc. I knew to much about those places, i had
read so many books written by graduates from all those fancy
universities, that I felt like I had been there (I probably did).
I wanted something new, something no one had ever heard of,
(probaly still haven't) or read of. I felt like the hipster wave
had gotten in to me, funny isn't it? I had spent my entire life
trying to stay away from the normal, the things society states
are "in" or "out", those new fashions that are followed by
brainless people whom indulge themselves into a culturally
starved, falselly re-imaginated utopia managed by all those big
enterprises, kind of like a game. But somehow it got on to me, it
did what I always expected it wouldn't. It reached out for the
new things, the things people did not do yet, or not anymore, or
so I thought.
So there I was, proudly reading my acceptance letter and
listening to Johnny Cashs' song: "One", such a beautiful song.
Oh, how I wish I had lived during those times. I probably will
someday, or maybe did. Weird right? You see, as I already said
before, I always wanted to create something great, but there's
much more to it. Much more than you could imagine. Because you
know what they say, "It's not about the destination, it's about
the journey." Well, my case had both, a great journey, and an
even greater destination.
