A mile wide and an inch deep


Yes, I know, I haven’t blogged in a lifetime. Oh well, not much to say.

But, here is something that I thought was interesting. I heard it said by the drummer for the group Wheezer. You remember them, with the ‘Just like Buddy Holly’ video and song.

He said, and I don’t remember his name, but the quote was great.

He was asked what he didn’t like about the music business, and he said

” I’m a mile wide and an inch deep”.
A mile wide and an inch deep describes most people, good or bad. I am that way. I am slightly ADD, or @ least easily distracted. I am always doing something, or several things, but never to the deepest level. I dabble but never master anything. I want to try new things while playing with different plates in the air.

We all, to some degree, are a mile wide and an inch deep. I do know a few people, who are actually a quarter mile wide, and a foot deep.
