Today is Swap Ideas Day. Share your ideas with others and listen to others’ ideas. I think this is crucial to our survival on the planet. Allow me to tell you why. I believe that every person on the planet has an idea that no one else on the planet understands or even has any idea about. This idea is so native to the person who holds it that they don’t realize that everyone else does not have the same idea. The people who have revolutionized human thought are the ones who have pondered the state of the world, realized that they understand something that no one else understands and then shared what they know with all of humanity. It may not be a big thing but even small, original thoughts can change the world and if you really do have a big one… wow. Share your ideas, put them out there, and give them a chance to die or thrive in the big world of ideas. You may be sitting on the next Mickey Mouse or Theory of Everything.
Bret Iwan was born on this day in 1982 in California. That was the year that I graduated from The University of Kentucky (momentary pause while I feel very old). Iwan is the fourth person to be the official voice of Mickey Mouse. Bret replaced Wayne Allwine when he passed in 2009. Russi Taylor, the widow of Wayne Allwine and the voice of Minnie Mouse, helped in the selection of Iwan. The only other people to voice Mickey were Walt Disney and Jimmy Macdonald. Go to the World and visit with Mickey, he’s everywhere, and whichever one you are with at the moment is the real one. Trust me, its Disney magic.
1950: Joe Perry was born in Boston, Massachusetts. Perry is one of the guitarists with Aerosmith. You know what to do, ride the Rock ‘N’ Roller Coaster featuring Aerosmith at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Take me to the other side.
Remember, your best excuse is always: waiting for your dreams to come true.
