52. COWHERD MENTALITY

Cowherd mentality astounds me.

It astounds me when I am a part of it.

It astounds me when others around me create it.

In everything we do, there is an extent of cowherd mentality involved as we take the best of what society deems as beneficial at a particular moment or situation and wears it like a fitted glove as and when needed.

When cowherd mentality sets in, suddenly everything in the room, including one’s thoughts are put on pause.

When cowherd mentality sets in, throw creative expressions out the door along with your sense of individualism.

When cowherd mentality sets in, God how I wish I could tip it over as easily as I would a dairy heffer in a remote Arkansas ranch.

When cowherd mentality sets in, hear everyone go ‘Moo!’

About thejellyfarm

In real life, I am a television writer and producer...er no...scratch...a television director....noo, scratch....a media loser.....wait, that doesn't sound quite insulting enough....... OK, ahem. In real life, I'm an idiot box expert with a penchant for the creative. In short, I'm a loser with no focus or direction in life. I just go where the creative flow takes me. Mostly it takes me to clogged up drains and stinky oceans but it's going.......going.....somewhere. And this blog is an expression of that mindblowing roadblock. Creative frustration is a great motivator and here is a result of that.
