True Talent

February 10, 2010

Recently, I’ve gotten really impatient with the posturing, show-off-ish, self indulgent behavior that surrounds me. There are a lot of people who let their insecurity (which we all grapple with) express itself in the most obnoxious ways — by talking themselves up and bringing other people down. I mean, there’s really no reason for name dropping or pretending like you know something when you don’t. Sigh.

Honestly, if you have talent, it will always shine through — no need for all the other nonsense.

To illustrate my point, let me use one of our best cultural arbiters: American Idol. These two auditions stood head and shoulders above all the others I saw last night. This is true talent, people!!
