An Act Of Mercy

This should be an act of mercy, those who advertise, they make you think and it was this way, long before the world wide web and the complete takeover by the social media networks and mobile devices. My guess is that back then, it was this way and not too long ago, and when a perfect venue arrived in your city, you probably read about this event in your local newspapers. You probably heard about the event through the advertisements, leaflets and flyers etc. This is probably still done this way, and also you may hear about a particular event ‘Live’ on a live broadcasting radio station, the one you listen to in your automobile.


I have recently heard something while listening to my favorite radio station:

“Be yourself; everyone else is already taken.”
-Oscar Wilde.

“People come and people go just be yourself, are you?”

Well, really that question was asked by The Guru himself. He is a friend to all of us. He perhaps is a mature gentleman a Scientist.

Maybe we kind of like for them to ask these questions, it’s an act of mercy, of quietly reflecting back. “Well, you’re all peas in a pot.”  After all, Scientists and Teachers, those full of technical answers, they can pull it out of you, they’re good listeners too, he is or was full of information.

Oscar Wilde was a Novelist, Poet, Essayist and is remembered for his Epigrams. An epigram is a brief, interesting, memorable, and sometimes surprising or satirical statement. -Wikipedia

So, some prophecies have to be fulfilled, so we hear them asked, now I’m about to respond to these radio advertisements. Do I answer them?

Does this radio station know its audience, do they know me. Sure they do. Now, perhaps they have an inkling of what I like. Perhaps that’s another story. It feels so right to answer this question: “Where did you go, I missed you!”  Ah, now that!

Clearly a decision has to be made, but that answer has never really materialized to me. I never tracked it, I was just being myself.
