To Bee or not to Bee... and the Boy

Some friends and I were discussing the dynamics of bumble bees this week. All the laws of physics prove that it is impossible for the bumble bee to fly. But no one told the bee that, so he just keeps right on doing his thing. Bee-ing himself. Going along without a single thought to physics or gravity or the laws of the universe, according to man. He disregards all of them completely.

I love that.

It reminds me of Kevin Max's "Be" (be yourself, don't let the losers tell you what to do... and be no one else, because if you don't, then who is going to?) Kevin is one of my all time favorites.

I was recently graced with the joy of being in the company of another little one who cares not what the world may think. He also goes about his own way and blissfully does his own thing; within the boundaries of permission, but just barely, and it's a charming quality in him.
This boy played his own version of 'Twinkle Twinkle Little Star"... very much in the style of the Red Hot Chili Peppers, in more ways than one.

Follow your dreams, and do what you love, as long as it doesn't hurt others... let nothing hold you back. Especially the voice of someone else telling you that you can't. Bee-cause...

Of course you can!
