I've been monitoring the whole Ted Williams (homeless man with the golden voice) story and I have to admit I'm sucked into it.
I found myself crying with joy over his newfound "Susan Boyle" discovery. But my question is "Why?"
I don't mind feeling the way I do. And as I posted previously, we respond to feelings, not logic. However, what is the deep connection that so many of us are feeling about this story? I know we would not connect as well if he had not had such a tough life – but he also brought that upon himself (which I say without judgment). If he was not humble, we wouldn't relate either. So, I know it's about overcoming obstacles and being your better self – but I think there's more to it.
I welcome comments. I want to continue with this story.
