Taking Sides: 25 Seconds for Today, Life, & the State of the World

As a writer my job is to see all sides.

If I take sides in a story, I maybe be blinded to the layers of other characters.

After all, all good and all bad characters are bo-o-o-o-o-ring.

They are boring in real life too, if you haven’t noticed.

So I must observe.

Of course, as a human, I do take sides.

I’ve done it many times in the past and will likely do it again. Today, in fact.

I can only hope I continue to observe, bring awareness to my prejudices, and see the many layers that make up you and me.
