Today was supposed to be the start of another big rainmaker, so the Occupy Orlando crew spent the day setting up large tents and moving everything underneath. Everyone was, as usual, in good spirits. The grounds of Senator Beth Johnson Park are clean and well-kept. The largest tent appears to be a communal tent for about a dozen or so folks, with a table on one side holding food and water.
There's a smaller media tent that's been up and running since the beginning. It's from that location where a small dedicated group keeps Occupy Orlando's web presence up-to-date. If the weather does get rough I hope they've got weather-proof containers to stow their gear in. I should note that everything is Apple.
I came across two familiar faces again this afternoon. And so I sat down and we talked a bit, and got to know each other a little better. At least they don't think I work for the CIA anymore. I hope.
The use of Apples brought to mind the original "Think Different" ad, back when I could philosophically support Apple, back before Apple turned into the very thing they railed against in their 1984 ad.
Here's to the crazy ones.
The round pegs in the square holes.
The ones who see things differently.
They're not fond of rules and they have no respect for the status quo
You can quote them,
Disagree with them,
Glorify or vilify them.
About the only thing you can't do is ignore them.
Because they change things.
They push the human race forward.
And while some may see them as the "crazy ones",
We see genius
Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the World
Are the ones who do.
