I once read something that said we are very likely to take a liking to people with the same name as us. So of course I just had to like Jimi Hendrix. I really do like his music though, it’s powerful. Crosstown traffic is one of my favourites, it’s the sort of song that gets me moving. So today I thought I’d share a few quotes by Hendrix because he’s said some pretty interesting things.
I think craziness is a sort of freedom. Sometimes we get scared to go all the way with it but maybe it’s worth it.
This quote actually makes me feel sad however I like it because when I hear his music I do exactly what he wanted people to do. Maybe that’s why it makes me sad, he’ll never know that we’re doing what he wanted.
Growing up I’ve had many people hold expectations for me that I knew I could never maintain. It’s as though I am expected to give my life to them and ignore who I am if it doesn’t fit into their box. The thing is though I’m going to die and what a waste it would be for me to ignore all that I am and can become just to please others.
