October 1, 2008When considering a group of people, depending on the group, Noise could potentially be one of my top 3 favorite people in the group…depending on the group. Seriously, Noise is TRULY one of my most favorite people in the entire WORLD. In circuits, “noise” is something unwanted, when you are focused on a particular signal. Well, THIS Noise, is the exact kind of voice that could be listened to as a means to stop being a drone, and to start thinking a little more outside of the box. He creates these situations and environments that bring people together to be creative. It’s a gift and I don’t think he realizes how much of an impact he has sometimes. He is so modest.
Noise lives in the moment and is aware that’s it’s a choice to make as to whether you get upset when the situation cannot be changed. This makes him an ideal person to road trip with. Truck breaks down for 3 hours on the side of the highway? No reason to get all negative. I forgot my Burning Man ticket and there was no “I cant believe you!” He just went right into “How can we fix this mode” instead of “You are an idiot mode”.
I admire Noise for eliminating a lot of the normal stresses most people face, and how he is then able to focus on projects that have more meaning to him. He is definitely an inspiration to me.
