I created the blog Outside the Glass with the goal of whisking you, the reader, beyond the confines of your daily grind and into a world of possibilities. While I hope to entertain and engage you, my ultimate goal is to get you to think. For those of you drowning inside the walls of the fishbowl in which you find yourself passing time, I also strive to broaden your dreams and ambitions as well as help motivate you to achieve them.
I firmly believe people need limits. Though we all collectively share in the wondrous phenomenon we call life, as we each travel the path of our individual destiny, never are we so utterly and completely alone. The vastness of our universe, coupled with our own self-awareness, can easily overwhelm us.
Fortunately we have geography, societies, families, friends, professions, hobbies and interests to stake out the boundaries we need to survive. Sadly, these same factors can also lock us in a box. They can keep us channeled into a limited, parochial mindset that prevents us from finding joy in our own lives or perhaps causes sadness in the lives of others.
The very act of reading this has already taken you outside the glass, if only for a brief moment. Whether you read my blog, stories, or books keep in mind the monitor/screen you are looking through is no longer the wall of your fishbowl, but of mine. Peer in whenever you like.
I'd like an occasional peek into yours too, so if I've got you thinking, please leave a comment!
