A platform, not made of brick or wood or put together by contracted hands. Not one boldly placed in front of an audience for a performance or a lecture to be viewed and critiqued by the masses. But a platform of internal construct, so we can externally be heard. Whether it’s at home, at the office, at school, or even at the DMV…we just crave that moment, those two minutes where the rest of the world just shuts up and focuses on what we have to say. Some view that as selfish. I say it’s educational. We learn from each other when someone is allowed to speak and we learn to truly stop and listen.
But why call this forum The Pretty Platform? In my opinion the word Pretty denotes something approachable, non intimidating, a thing to be contemplated, easy on the eyes and ears.
When I have a thought, need to vent or share, when it’s too good to be kept to myself, or if I’m just pissed off at something (or someone) you’ll find it here.
I have this crazy notion that you’d like to share as well, so I invite you to do the same. Please comment whether you agree with me or not. That’s the beauty of humanity. We get to be just who we want to be, say what we want to say, think what we want to think.
Should be fun, informative, enlightening and weird. And that’s okay in my book.
