Ace Andres – On Anthony Bourdain’s “No Reservations”
on the Travel Channel
Do you know who you are? Have you decided what you are? Do you spend your days sitting your ass in front of a computer screen? Do you take that mind polluting instrument to bed with you? Do you find yourself becoming more and more a part of the Matrix?
I don’t want to spend the rest of my life reading about other people’s lives. I don’t want to watch the Bio channel and read about when Freddie Mercury told the public he was gay. I want to make my own mark on this life and let my death be the exclamation point. In spite of my daily pain, I’m going to become more than just a pronoun.
We all need to learn how to, love, live, learn and most importantly; We need to leave a legacy.
Have you had your finest hour or was it just 15 minutes of fame? 15 minutes? “May it never be”. When I was in kindergarten we were all asked what we wanted to be when we grew up. At five years of age, when the other boys were saying occupations like “Policemen”, “Astronaut”, “Firemen”, “Soldiers” and other noble positions, I stood up and said I wanted to be like Elvis Presley. My Teacher was speechless.
I’m still waiting for my finest hour.
