I cant sit here by the computer for very long today so my participation will be spotty ( as usual) in my own thread. LOL! Forgive my crappy thread
author habits.. I have a few irons in the fire. Excuses, excuses!
I was with a few long term friends this past weekend, and we were talking about a project I had in the works and their own experiences with
recognition and dealing with the public. Im not an actor or anything like that, I just have an odd way of thinking and it translates into odd ideas
that people seem to like. LOL! My question to them was.. how do they deal with being recognized. Now Im a private person. Maybe.. possibly..
pathologically private. Not shy at all, just a control freak over when I want to be seen or approached and when I dont! I weirded out a while back
when the kid up the street asked me what I was ( nationality) because they were watching me garden in the front yard. I said how can you see me from
that far?! He said his dad was using a spotting scope. I weirded out and didnt garden in the front yard for over a year. Im NOT joking. LOL! I dont
like being observed, watched, recognized... and unlike a lot of folks, dont like attention. Ive spent my life attempting to be invisible unless I WANT
to be seen.. with little success! I mean if I CHOOSE to be recogized.. like speakng on a subject in public or etc... Im fine because I choose it. When
Im approached by a random person.. I feel its weird. Theyre imposing on my ME time and peaceful frame of mind. LOL!
So answer me this: HOW do you deal with it? Is it something in you that doesnt mind or actually enjoys the recognition? Is it just a personality
difference or have you learned a skill that enables you to deal with people and their strange ways that I have yet to discover?
Is it impossible to craft something, give it to someone else to claim and be recognized for, and micromanage behind the scenes so I can be totally
hidden but still cash the check? LOL!
