It’s the most simple visual. The plainest concept, boring in fact. A line. What a bum wrap it has. Straight and flat for all intents and purposes… blah. Only a line is anything but boring, straight and flat. For example when “I draw the line” I am talking serious business. Who’s with me? You’ve said it “Ok, that’s where I draw the line.” Someone crosses that lame line they are going to regret it. All of a sudden that boring line is the difference between life and death. Okay so maybe not that severe, but you get the idea.
My life has been full of lines. Lines at the grocery store (yes, that pack of gum counts as your 11th item, out of the express lane!), lines at amusement parks (the ones where no matter how much you crane your neck you’re not going to see the end, and the dreaded line for the public bathroom (in this case the line is likely the safest place).
Lines matter. Kids are taught to color inside the lines, to walk in a single file line. It’s pretty much the first life lesson, following the line leader. Move on in life and that line leads you down a road full of choices, realistically and theoretically speaking. Lines will be crossed. Lines will be drawn. There is always a fine line between what we see as important and something we dismiss as simple and insignificant. Take a second to change your perspective. Yes, there was that whole mess with Miley and Robin Thicke, but sometimes a blurred line isn’t such a bad thing.
