Intoxicated by the possibility of making mediocrity hard to sustain (#100ppl)
I was asked recently what my favorite Gaping Void piece is. I experienced a brief moment of intense stress, similar to the feeling Iâm sure Iâd have if someone offered to buy me any vehicle in the world but I could only choose one. Several rushed through my mind but I kept coming back to two of them. Hope Iâm not breaking the rules too blatantly.
Brief back story: Gaping Void is the âbrand nameâ of Hugh MacLeod, cartoonist, author, blogger, and general creativity muse. Hugh was the first blogger I ever started reading. I have no recollection of how I found his site though Iâm sure it had something to do with one of his cartoons I found somewhere. This was several years ago and after that first encounter, I forgot about him entirely until maybe a year later (Iâm guessing 2006 at this point) when I felt this strange need to find his site again. It took a while (I completely forgot the name, URL, everything) but I finally found it and when I did, I was elated. I started reading Hugh regularly and was particularly affected by his creativity manifesto, how to be creative. Since then, Iâve been a huge fanâ¦ bought business cards with his cartoon on one side…
