On a red world,
Blue glass is
More precious than rubies

I was always the kid who didn't fit in, no matter how hard I tried. I finally realized that trying to be 'normal' is a good way to destroy your creativity-- I cherish my 'weirdness' because it has allowed me to see things in a different way. Who wants to be a ruby when the world is full of rubies? I'm an expert at being the blue glass-- it's a lonely task sometimes, but I can't pretend to be a ruby.

Do or Do Not, There is No Try! I am the long hair in a room full of buzz-cuts, the jokester in the most serious moment, I AM The BLUE GLASS, TOO (it also helps it's my favorite color).

He thought all was black and white - until a bluebird told him it was red! Weird is what colours our world - go for it!

I can totally identify with this. i've always been a quiet, introverted loner, and I proudly consider myself a freak.

Wonderful! god made each of us unique, we are the ones who mess it up when we try to be what others think we should, or what we think is better. I learned that when we accept who we are, others will too...;-).
