As you may know, there are two kinds of people in this world; those who stay within the lines and think only inside the box and those who do NOT and consequently get themselves in trouble or become famous, rich and otherwise break free of the constraints society wishes to put on them.
But did you know there is a third type of person? Yes, there is, and I'm married to him. Tom is the kind of person who does NOT stay within lines but not because he doesn't want to...he simply refuses to see boundaries, you see. If he doesn't see lines there is no need to stay within them...get it?
And as for thinking inside the box? He just doesn't believe this mythical box exists...he certainly has never seen or felt it, so, of course, why would he make himself stay in a place that does not exist... Let alone his brain function!?
As far as I can tell there is only one Tommy of my acquaintance although there must have been a few others-- all of them innovators, inventors and otherwise near or actual geniuses. They can see far beyond the average person's line of vision and also think far beyond most people's ability.
They are a special breed and therefore need understanding. They do NOT often have what we ordinary folk call "people skills", you see. We must make allowances for them because, let's face it, without them we might very well be still in the stone age rubbing sticks together to make fire...or maybe not even that!
I'll bet anything the first guy to rub two sticks together to make fire was labeled a kook. Gotta love the kooks of this world! At least I do.
