Pretending to Be…


About this site

There are many individuals that inspire me…
But rather than aspiring to be like those who inspire me the most,
I much rather aspire to reach that same level of Inspiration they achieved…
In essence I aspire to inspire
But there’s a problem..
Im still only learning…

I am still being educated on being an Architect…
…still improving on how I write…
…still yearning to be poetic…
…still striving to be articulate…
…still working on my hustle…
…still tinkering with my future…
…still smoothing out my style…
…still practicing my humor
…still learning how to love…

So until I learn how to master all of those things,
I find it easiest just to PRETEND
Pretending, not for the sake of FAKING it…
But rather to substitute it during this time in my life where I cannot honestly say with integrity that I am good at something…
Im content to say I am a master of nothing but an apprentice of everything
So until that day comes…
I will continue to pretend
Always just PRETENDING TO BE…

I like the conceit, man. The string of “Pretending to be”. There’s a great novel by Richard Russo called “Straight Man” where the character keeps saying “I’m not a ________ but I can play that role” which is a funny way of saying he’s all of those things and none of those things.
