Defy

Inquiry is a defiant act. We cannot ask for permission. All of the logic and reason in the world means nothing in the face of truth.

FOOL

Start a huge, foolish project
like Noah.

It makes absolutely no difference 
what people think of you.

Early 90s Music Flashback: Dream On, Dream Away

Outtake dialogue* from this 1991 Color Me Badd video for "I Adore Mi Amor":

"These now-soggy denim overalls were a poor choice for the beach."

"My enormous white sweatshirt is even longer than my blue shorts!"

"What is this treasure chest of Color Me Badd swag doing here??"

"Who cares -- let's set up camp--"

"AND FOUR PART HARMONY!" (said in unison, of course)

*This dialogue takes place completely in my head.
