Let Yer Crazy Show!
The problem with you and me is that we are too concerned with what other people think.
Right down the highway from where I live is an attraction called The House on the Rock.
The house was constructed by Alex Jordan. Along with the house, are the most unique and strange collections in a “museum” housed on the grounds.
Some of the items in the collection are breath-taking, rare and beautiful. Other parts of the collections are just plain bizarre.
All of it is 100% over-the-top! (as you can see from the chair pictured here)
Let Yer Crazy Hang Out
Jordan collected what made him happy–whether it was dozens of ordinary, Santa Claus-shaped mugs, or rare oriental art. He didn’t care what people thought of him.
The point is, if you wanna build a room and cover the walls, ceilings and floors in bright red shag carpet, do it.
If you want to construct a massive 3-story, 3-D battle between a giant whale and a killer squid–just to house your model ship collection, do it.
Follow the path of what makes you happy. Follow what lights you up inside. So few do.
The result will be that people will come from far and near to witness the passion of someone committed to putting their crazy on display!
