Walk

The suggestion was that I learn the more popular songs, and add some rock to my gig. Then I’d be like everyone else I suggested back. Yes, she said. That would be a great idea. As you are, she suggested… it’s out of step with the world. Bend a bit, stop all this talk about history, and is it Sociology? It’s Anthropology, I replied. It would be best if you were a business major, she assured me. You can always get an excellent job support a family, a wife.

Uh, I asked, is there anything you like about me just the way I am?

She paused, “You’re super cute, honey.”

“No problem is so formidable that you can’t walk away from it.” 

Charles M. Schulz

And so I did.
