Experts Among Us
“I’m always looking, and I’m always asking questions.” Anne Rice
There is no doubt Anne Rice is an expert. She’s a master of the vampire genre. She was master long before the muddled teenage angst of The Lost Boys or more recently, Twilight. Anne Rice is a legend among vampire writers and readers.
Within our circle of friends and acquaintances, there are those who know more than the average bear about all manner of things. There are experts among us. As our world digitally expands, it’s easy to ask the world at large when one has a question or query. If there is a quandary afoot or research to be done, most of us, myself included, will go online to find not just one answer but every possible answer for simple questions.
I realized recently that I am surrounded by experts; experts in auto repair and restoration, experts in communications, graphic arts and art in general. I know people personally that I would consult if I were redecorating, considering a change in appearance, had questions about all manner of energy, needed my deck redone, or had a website issue. I would go to my circle before going online.
Consider your friends closely when faced with an issue, problem or conundrum. There are experts among you. They are there to guide, provide information, direct and answer, if we can only learn to ask them.
Your circle is also there to not only answer questions but offer a level of solace and comfort not available in an online community. If you have an issue with a child, work, or health, try a new tack. Instead of asking the question of the world, who considers you an anonymous entity, consult the experts among you. You’ll be surprised at the level of expertise among the people you know. Just ask.
