from the mind of critic: 1/26/19

From the mind of critic: “If the winds of change are blowing, do we run out first thing and grab a windbreaker? Do we erect huge walls and impediments, so when the wind blows, we can block it? Do we believe if we don’t block the wind, that it’ll gust right through us, completely destroying everything we’ve built as our character? Is the wind so strong it’ll knock us down and we won’t be able to get up again, or does the wind not change who we are deep down, but instead makes us better by forcing us to evolve? Adapt or perish, evolve or devolve, create or destroy, not only are there multiple definitions of change, but there are also infinite ways of interpreting its effects. Now that’s not to say there aren’t a few general reactions, there are, but with infinite variations. There are people who embrace change, fight change, and those who ignore change and pretend it’s not happening. We aren’t always all one way or another, in fact most of the time we’re an amalgamation. So, if we’re an amalgamation of all different things and change comes along, like it always has and always will, how do we know it won’t elevate our consciousness? Fighting change is like fighting a brick wall, we use all our strength, but it ain’t moving. Embracing change is like noticing a brick wall, and finding the best ways to work within it’s confines. Ignoring change is pretending the wall doesn’t exist, before we run into it head first. Change doesn’t have to be scary, specifically because we have nothing to fear but fear itself.”
