While the rest of the world appears to be enjoying a nice warm summer, over here in the Mourne Mountains, autumn has already made it’s entry. As I look out the window, the wind is howling, rain is clattering against the window, and in general it feels like time to light the fire!

I was just looking for some ideas ( that’s what Sunday mornings are for) and came across this gem:

Here’s to the crazy ones.

Here’s to the crazy ones.
The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers.
The round pegs in the square holes.
The ones who see things differently.
They’re not fond of rules.
And they have no respect for the status quo.
You can praise them, disagree with them, quote them,
disbelieve them, glorify or vilify them.
About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them.
Because they change things.
They invent. They imagine.
They heal. They explore. They create. They inspire.
They push the human race forward.
Maybe they have to be crazy.

How else can you stare at an empty canvas and see a work of art?
Or sit in silence and hear a song that’s never been written?
Or gaze at a red planet and see a laboratory on wheels?
While some may see them as the crazy ones, others see genius.

Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.

(Loosely based on ‘Here’s to the crazy ones’ from Jack Kerouac’s book ‘On the Road’)
