Epic and Ordinary

DSCN5588

Epic!

Epic is a very overused word. That epic game last night. An epic speech on YouTube. Epic plays. I wish the word epic only applied to stuff that was at least 75 years old, like epic books or epic wars.

Our phones give us some much self importance that we don’t need. Instead of worrying about epic, let’s just worry on the ordinary and normal. Let’s not tell everyone they are special for getting the mail, or reading a 1000-page book. If I can’t remember something in ten years, it shouldn’t count as epic.

    HOW COOL IS THAT PHOTO??? If it’s cool with you, I’m going to download it and photoshop it so that all the train cars say “Eric” because that’s my name. Then I’ll use it as my Facebook header. I’ll credit you by saying “Original Image by Derek Johnson © 2015. Edited by Eric Epson © 2015.”
