Don't you know who I am?

Recently I inadvertently met someone "famous". Now famous is used loosely here because I admittedly had no idea who the woman was, and she was more than a little miffed when she realized with great shock that I was clueless to her apparent status. What I am realizing over and over is that I have been put in these positions in my life to learn (among many other things). And this week was a down right growth spurt. LOL!

I think that I have said here before but I've never really been impressed by celebrity. I respect art tremendously and one of my life mantras is 'speak truth, show gratitude' so if a moment reveals itself and I get to speak to someone of note who has touched me in some way I will absolutely give them a kind word or many. The part that bugs me is when the E G O gets so large that it turns that regular ole person into a celeb snob. It turns me off instantly. I was watching Oprah the other day and even she introduced herself with a smile and outstretched hand. The women who needs no introduction took the time to introduce herself. It made me love her even more. Aaaand one day... if ever I become a person of note I will try to remember that I am just a regular ole gal and I will not assume that everyone who crosses my path knows who I am. And that is what I have to say about that.

p.s. Isn't spurt a fun word!
