I have proposed to Mayor Lisa Sulka and the Town Council that we celebrate our wonderful uniqueness one day a year.
The third Thursday in June of each year will be known as Eccentric Day. The day will be a day in celebration of all of our wonderful Blufftonians who have since gone on to their glorious pursuits in that "heavenly state of mind" -- and of those of us here on our little piece of terra firma still perfecting the art.
On Eccentric Day, I ask that each of us do one small act of kindness -- but not out of neccessity.
When the day is over, make sure you have left something good behind.
Beauty comes and goes, but the kindness we show each other will last forever.
Remember to never lose yourself in the process of being a real eccentric.
As the great Yogi Berra once said: "When you come to the fork in the road ... take the fork." I think that perhaps that is how we all got here.
So Thursday is our first Eccentric Day.
Don't waste it.
See you at the farmers market.
