Your theme this week is careen-stable. Here's Rebecca Rusche to tell you of the term's origin and how to recognize when it shows up in your life. "In high school, my mom used to let me use her VW Beetle to go to basketball practice. One night after practice, a friend and I were chatting and drinking Coke when we decided to see how fast we could get the Beetle going down a nearby dirt road. Soon we were careening at 65 mph, shouting 'careen!' every time we hit a bump and went flying into the air. When we arrived back at the gym and got out of the car half an hour later, we saw my Coke can sitting on the front bumper next to the license plate. I nudged it softly to see if it was lodged in there somehow, but it fell right off -- wasn't stuck at all. I thought, 'There must be a word for this magic,' and thus 'careen-stable' was born. It came to mean anything that maintains its poise in the midst of wild, fast movement."
We were all created equal but it is hard to argue with Orwell's assertion that seemingly, 'some are more equal than others.' You certainly have talents and abilities that many in your vicinity lack. Insights and understandings too. So sophisticated and apposite are these that certain other people don't even understand what it is that they don't understand! Are you splitting hairs or recognising some essential truth that urgently needs attention? That's a question that neither I nor you should be asking. Have more faith in your exceptional powers of perspicacity.
