Winning June 26th, 2011
I started this post many months ago and was going to title it “Is Charlie Sheen really that delusional?” Thinking: high salary, fame, goddesses… it would be a bit delusional for him to think he is not at least somehow god-like.
But twice now I’ve revisited these earlier thoughts, both times just thinking about the ways he has impacted society.
From blog posts to stated personal philosophies to my neighbor’s description of his shirt, I still keep seeing and hearing things related to him. People might say it’s the wrong kind of publicity; I can’t really pass judgment on that. I keep coming back to that word “winning” tattooed on his wrist, not so that he can read it but so others can, and how that continues to show up in general commentary, conversation and Twitter hashtags on all sorts of subjects… Regardless of what it means for him, or even what other people think it means to them, I think that sort of thing (just seeing the word itself all over the place) gets into our psyches and has a positive effect.
There was and is more I would like to say, but maybe it’s best that I just end here with:
Thanks for the vote of confidence, Mr. Sheen.

P.S. Ok, I’ll give a link that captures some of my other thoughts, here.
